Really enjoying RStudio‘s Shiny Developer Conference | Stanford University | January 2016.

Winston Chang just demonstrated profvis, really slick. You can profile code just by wrapping it in a profvis({}) block and the results are exported as interactive HTML widgets.

For example, running the R code below:

if(!('profvis' %in% rownames(installed.packages()))) {

nrow = 10000
ncol = 1000
data <-*ncol),

  d <- data
  means <- apply(d,2,mean)
  for(i in seq_along(means)) {
    d[[i]] <- d[[i]] - means[[i]]

Produces an interactive version of the following profile information:

Definitely check it out!

Many other great presentations, this one is just particularly easy to share.
