Building easy and interactive dashboards in R with flexdashboard

March 30, 2017 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm UTC+0

Dear all,

R-Ladies Melbourne is now announcing its March event! Thanks to Zendesk! They provide us drinks and pizzas as well!!

We invite you to participate in our “Meet an R-Lady” session which will occur prior to the talks during each meetup. All you need to do is to tell us about yourself for 3 mins. As we’d like to build strong relationships with our women, we’d like to get to know each one of you better and wouldn’t it be great if you get to know the others? Please email us if you’d like to volunteer!

Our speaker Kaushik Lakshman previously gave a talk about flexdashboards in  Melbourne Users of R Network with fantastic feedback from the audience. So we invited him to share his knowledge with R-Ladies and he kindly accepted our invitation. Here are the details of his talk.

Title: Building easy and interactive dashboards in R with flexdashboard 

Abstract: Outputs of analyses or analytics pipelines often contain visualisations, summarised data and commentary around it. While this can be achieved using multiple methods such as good old fashioned Powerpoints, RMarkdowns or Shiny Apps; the good folks at R Studio have given analysts and data scientists a new alternative via a package called flexdashboard. Find out how easy it is to build flexible, attractive and interactive dashboards with R. 

Speaker: Kaushik Lakshman is a data scientist and a big fan of R. He works at Betfair Australia, the world’s largest betting exchange. He came across the flexdashboard package a few months ago and has already implemented a few in his organisation. He was enamoured by its ease of use and value it provided and would like to share that with the R Ladies group. He’s going to take us through flexdashboards and its different features, with examples and code Betfair’s after which all attendees hopefully are in a position to create their own dashboards with ease.

Looking forward to seeing you all,
