R Shiny, from the people behind R Studio, allows you to quickly and easily build basic web applications using only the R language. I will be demonstrating the basics of web app creation, and will show you a number of examples for purposes such as data visualization and student learning. The talk will require only rudimentary knowledge of R. After the talk (45mins) you are welcome to join me at the Colonial Hotel for dinner.
Alec Stephenson is a CSIRO scientist and a former academic at The National University of Singapore and Swinburne University. It is his third talk for the MelbURN group, following previous talks on spatial data (Sept 2011) and speeding up your R code (Sept 2012). He has been writing R software since the days when there were only a hundred or so R packages. He still dislikes the ifelse function.
