It's been almost one year since our first discussion of Shiny. So it's time to revisit it from a different angle. Arrive from 5:45pm for a 6pm talk.
Afterwards we will move on to a nearby pub for networking opportunities.
Talk Outline: Shiny has the power to be an easy and effective reporting tool for non-analytic business users. This talk covers my experience of when to use Shiny within business, for what purpose, and how I successfully convinced others in my organisation to use it.
We'll cover what needs to be setup when you first install Shiny Server as well as linking it up to independent databases, interfacing with Github and ensuring Google Analytics tracking is configured correctly. Finally, I will provide some examples of dashboards and case studies involving Shiny at Campaign Monitor.
About our Speaker: Ross Leedham is the first ever data analyst at Campaign Monitor. His data extraction, aggregation, analyses and visualisation skills enable better decision making across every area of the organisation. When he's not wrestling with data sets of 6 billion records or more, he spends his time brushing up on his Japanese, watching cricket, and keeping up on national and global politics.
