Building Interactive Plots with Shiny
November 29, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm UTC+0
WHAT WE’RE DOING:
This event will be a mix of socializing and trying out Shiny. Shiny is an R package that makes it easy to build interactive web apps straight from R. You can host standalone apps on a webpage or embed them in R Markdown documents or build dashboards. Here’s an example of a Shiny app from David Robinson (the stats guy, not the basketball player).
WHAT TO BRING:
Bring your laptop. Your laptop cord and a notebook might be a good idea, too. If you can, try to install R and the Shiny package before coming.
Just down the hall is a mini coffee shop (open til 8PM). Feel free to bring snackies or beverages.
We have a classroom for this meetup! Meet us in room 226 of O’Shaughnessy Science. This is the building connected to Owens science. You can park on Summit for free. The parking ramp is also convenient and decently priced ($1.00 or $1.50 per hour). The east side of the building has an elevator and the building is generally accessible.
Kim Ky and Becca will be creating some basic examples to teach us how Shiny works.
