Building A Gantt Chart With ggplot2

Sebastian Sauer shows us how to build a gantt chart in R:

Of importance are only TaskPrevious_Evnet and Duration. In addition, we need an overall start date (“2019-03-01” in this case). Each subsequent task is assumed to follow neatly its predecessing event.

Our job is to compute the start date and end date of task given that we know the initial start date and the durations. As said, this procedure is based on the assumption that there is a frictionless and gapless sequence of tasks.

Read on for a code-heavy example.  I’ve always had a soft spot in my heart for gantt charts.

Controlling Power BI Visual Visibility

Matt Allington shows how we can take one Power BI visual and use it to control the visibility status of another visual: I have written a few articles in the past that toy with the ideas of changing visibility and text colour based on selection.  I started to wonder if it was possible to make a visual appear […]

Naive Bays in R

Zulaikha Lateef takes us through the Naive Bayes algorithm and implementations in R: Naive Bayes is a Supervised Machine Learning algorithm based on the Bayes Theorem that is used to solve classification problems by following a probabilistic approach. It is based on the idea that the predictor variables in a Machine Learning model are independent of […]
