The Web According to Emerson (getting started with Shiny and More)

  • December 11, 2013 · 6:30 PM

For December we have Jay Emerson from Yale discussing his new package, ShinyHelper, designed to help people get started with Shiny from RStudio.

About the talk:

In the beginning of the World Wide Web (WWW) there was HyperText Markup Language (HTML) and Common Gateway Interface (CGI) programming.  And it was good.  New technologies appeared as the web evolved, with JavaScript and cascading style sheets (CSS) becoming the building blocks of the new millennium.  And it was better.  More recently, packages from Simon Urbanek (FastRWeb) and RStudio (Shiny) bring the power and flexibility of the R language to the web.  Examples will be provided (Hello World and more).  To help people get started with Shiny, I'll introduce my new package ShinyHelper (available on GitHub).


About Jay:

Jay Emerson is Director of Graduate Studies in the Department of Statistics at Yale University.  He has authored many R packages, including bigmemory (and sister packages), bcp, YaleToolkit, gpairs, and others.  He's currently working on a book about horse racing data analysis, and has two very cute and mischievous kittens temporarily housed in his office.

Pizza starts at 6:30, Jay begins at 7 and then we will head to the local bar.

    I feel the talk went very slowly and could have been more productive and covered more ground. Shiny seems like a great tool and I look forward to using it.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
