Plotly is a social data analysis and visualization platform. It's the easiest way to make and share interactive, publication-quality graphs. Plotly's R API lets you visualize data from your desktop R environment in your browser and share it with a short-link with your friends. Plotly is built in Montreal, Boston, and San Francisco.
Chris Parmer was an electrical engineering major at McGill University. With one semester left, he dropped out to co-found Plotly with his brother and two of their friends. Chris enjoys Montreal Silent Disco, topological dynamics, and winter bike racing. His goal with Plotly is to make it the place where everyone makes and shares their data and graphs, everywhere in the world.
The animint package extends the popular ggplot2 package by adding 2 new aesthetics: clickSelects and showSelected. These new aesthetics allow an interactive, animated web graphic to be defined using a list of ggplots. During this talk Toby will briefly explain how to use the animint package, and then give some examples of interactive web graphics that can be created. The animint package is joint work with Susan VanderPlas, my student in Google Summer of code 2013.
Toby Dylan Hocking is a postdoc working with Guillaume Bourque in the McGill Human Genetics department. He has been using R since 2003 and has written several packages. His research interests include applications of machine learning and interactive graphics to bioinformatics.
