I had amazingly positive feedback from my presentation on “Empathy in Action” today at rstudio::conf in Austin. My main focus was emphasizing that most business users don’t want to learn to code. They just want to kick ass. And coding can be a means to that end.

The real reason it was so memorable, however, was the wonderful custom images from Allison Horst. Alison’s sad and happy apps really stole the show!
Thank you Allison for your cute/fun/awesome drawings! They helped make the story more fun to tell.
