Aggregate meetup No. 17! Everyone is welcome!

shiny (https://shiny.rstudio.com/) is a popular web application framework for making interactive visualizations and dashboards, allowing R users to share their analyses in an interactive format with minimal web programming expertise. In this workshop, we will produce a simple data exploration dashboard with tooltips using the shiny, ggplot2 and flexDashboard packages. I will introduce the basic concepts behind programming a shiny application, as well as some useful design patterns (reactives, tooltips, observe/update/isolate). Basic familiarity with R programming concepts and ggplot2 are suggested

We will not have pizza this time, but we will have some drinks, and perhaps some light snacks.
