R meetup on Mar 28

By: Ben Toh

This week’s R meetup will be on Wednesday (Mar 28; 4-6pm) at Marston science library Room 136. In the first hour of the meetup (4-5pm), Justin will be giving a presentation on the Shiny package in R. Shiny allows R users to create interactive web application right from R without any knowledge of HTML/JavaScript/CSS. Shiny apps can be freely hosted on www.shinyapps.io, and can have a wide range of potential uses. Shiny is a broad topic (way more than we could cover in a hour!), so this presentation will focus on the basics of Shiny, resources for learning Shiny, and some examples of Shiny apps. We will also have a demonstration of creating a simple app for some data exploration.

Thank you.
