Happy Shiny New Year!

January 30 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm UTC+0

Hi everyone!

Per your requests, we’re having a tutorial on interactive data visualization with R Shiny and using R with a related data visualization platform, Tableau!

Guest speaker Dave Forse will lead a 45-minute tutorial on data visualization with R and Tableau, and the R-Ladies Irvine co-organizers will show you how to create an R Shiny application in under an hour.

Please bring your laptops and have R, RStudio, and the tidyverse and shiny packages (all open-source and free) installed and working. However, if you’re having issues with any of these, don’t worry! We’re all here to help. 🙂
