We look forward to seeing you at our August meeting.

This time our meeting will be held at Fishburners in Ultimo.

 

Talk Outline: "Shiny makes it super simple for R users like you to turn analyses into interactive web applications that anyone can use. No HTML or JavaScript knowledge is necessary. If you have some experience with R, you’re just minutes away from combining the statistical power of R with the simplicity of a web page." - http://www.rstudio.com/shiny/

The talk will cover:

- An introduction to Shiny

- Building and customising your own Shiny web apps

- Demonstration of some advanced Shiny features

    thanks from me too Ian. Also interested in "glossy" applications of Shiny (that are still tractably achievable by the basic programmer - wraps are fine). Thanks again.

    Good talk Ian! Any chance we can get the slides? Especially the ones where you suggest "advanced" shiny charting options

    Thankyou everyone for updating your RSVP status if you can no longer make it. There's now only a few people on the waiting list.

    If anyone (including the new YES RSVPs) can not make it tonight, please update your status asap so that someone else can attend in your place.

    Hi everyone,
    Letting you know I've now closed this event to new RSVPs because we now have 16 people on the waiting list. We are limited to 75 in the room, so should circumstances have changes and you can no longer attend, please update ASAP so someone else can attend. Thanks in advance.

    Looking forward to seeing you all and learning about Shiny from Ian Hansl this coming Monday!

      Anil - we have a limit of 75 people attending, so you must be a yes RSVP to attend. However, it's likely that some YES RSVPs are no longer able to attend.

      August 6, 2013

    • Anil

      Thanks Louise, i'll check the status before the event!

      August 7, 2013

  • Louise L.

    Hi everyone,
    There are 15 people on the waiting list for shiny next Monday.
    If you have RSVPed and are no longer able to attend, please update your status to NO. That way someone else will be able to take your place.

    Thankyou!

    Hi Dale,

    Installing Shiny Server on EC2 is pretty straight forward. Here are some resources to help you get started:
    - https://github.com/rstudio/shiny-server/wiki/Ubuntu-step-by-step-install-instructions
    - http://mpopov.com/post/40976561625/shiny-server-amazon-ec2-guide

    I'll cover a bit of this during the talk as well.

    I was looking at the demos for this package. The output looks impressive.
    I was wondering if many people have gone through the process of installing it on their server? What's the pain rating if so?
    It would be pretty cool to add this functionality to a site.
