I just gave a workshop teaching the basics of Shiny (the interactive web visualization framework) for a group of PDX R users. We had 10 people attend, and most of the attendees managed to get through the material and had lots of good questions. I really enjoyed talking with everyone and I hope everyone learned something. We’re planning to give the workshop again to the larger PDX R user community, and some of the attendees last night have volunteered to be TAs.
In the workshop, we build a flexible
csv (comma separated value) explorer that can load in
csv data files with adaptive controls and tooltips.
In terms of packages, the workshop uses the
plotly to show some basic programming patterns in
- Connecting controls to
- Filtering data using
- Tooltips (the hard way/the plotly way)
- The final product
I’d love for more people to take a look at the workshop and would love any suggestions for making it better!
