On november 20th 2018 I was requested to make a keynote speech at the 9th MilanoR meeting, the most relevant italian meeting of R users.

The main topic of the speech was one of my last coding fatigues: the Paletter package, a new R package able to derive an optimised colour palette from any kind of image.

You can also find a kind reportage of the evening directly on the official MilanoR blog, and the full deck of slides online.

From the speech on Paletter has obtained nice feedbacks from the R community. You can actually see on the web nice and even arthistic uses of the package. Take for instance the following pic from Natalie Pilakouta:

It's conference season! Are you preparing a talk or a poster? Did you know you can use paletteR to create a custom colour palette (for your graphs, fonts, etc) from a photo or drawing (of your study species, field site, or whatever else you want)? https://t.co/oIoQGbG0JQ #rstats pic.twitter.com/qmywmL0BsM
