Aggregate meetup No. 17!
shiny is a popular web application framework for making interactive visualizations and dashboards, allowing R users to share their analyses in an interactive format with minimal web programming expertise. In this workshop, we will produce a simple data exploration dashboard with tooltips using the shiny, ggplot2 and flexDashboard packages. I will introduce the basic concepts behind programming a shiny application, as well as some useful design patterns (reactives, tooltips, observe/update/isolate). Basic familiarity with R programming concepts and `ggplot2` are suggested
We will not have pizza this time, but we will have some drinks, and perhaps some light snacks.
* This aggregate will be a bit different from the others. pdxrlang member Ted Laderas (http://laderast.github.io/ - https://github.com/laderast) will give a workshop on using Shiny. More details to come!
