pdxrlang meetup: aggregate - Shiny workshop
US Custom House / WeWork

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.

Agenda:

• Bring your computer!

• Time: 630pm - 8pm

Portland R User Group
Lucky Labrador Brew Pub

We are the local R user group for Portland, Oregon. R is a free software environment for statistical computing and graphics (http://www.r-project.org/ ). Our goal is to support and share R experience and knowledge among its users in the Portland community. We would like to hear how you use and enjoy the R language and statistical programming environment.

Galois Tech Talk: Empirical Sampling With Haskell
Galois, Inc

Presented by Chad Scherrer.

Sampling from a large discrete distribution is a common problem in statistics. In this talk, we'll consider a real-world situation where the properties of the distribution cause common approaches to break down, and we'll arrive at a Haskell-based solution that fixes the problem.

MathWorks Seminar: Mathematical Modeling with MATLAB - Tigard
Embassy Suites Portland - Washington Square

Attend this free seminar to find out how you can use MATLAB to build mathematical models for forecasting and optimizing the behavior of complex systems.

In this seminar, MathWorks engineers demonstrate how you can: * Develop models using data fitting and first-principles modeling techniques * Simulate models and create custom post-processing routines * Generate reports that document models and simulation results

After this session, you’ll understand the range of modeling approaches possible with MATLAB, when to use each, and why.

Previous MATLAB software experience is not required to attend but registration is required to reserve your seat.

January R Meetup @ Simple!
Simple

Josh Reich will be presenting on the data.table package!

Additionally, Simple's Director of Research Allen Goodman will be giving a talk on time series analysis:

"From a statistical perspective, the analysis of time series hasn't dramatically diverted from the program established by George Box and Gwilym Jenkins in 'Time series analysis: Forecasting and Control'. However, from a computational perspective, statisticians haven't adopted best practices for model identification, parameter estimation, model diagnostics, or forecasting. I'll model a time series using the Box-Jenkins program in R, outlining contemporary attitudes within the R community on the subject"

pdxrlang meetup: shiny night: tutorial and use cases
WeWork Custom House

Let's have a Shiny night! If you're not familiar with Shiny, check it out at http://shiny.rstudio.com - Shiny is a web application framework for R. Many people use Shiny to convey business/research/etc. findings to collaborators/bosses/etc. without needing the person to be able to code. Checkout https://shiny.rstudio.com/gallery to see some really cool examples.

We're going to have a brief tutorial for those that haven't used Shiny, as well as some Shiny use cases to see what you can do with Shiny in the real world.

Speakers:

• Winston Saunders - intro to Shiny

• Jessica Minnier - speaking on https://kcvi.shinyapps.io/START/

• Kinga Farkas - CUSUM Anomaly Detection App Using Shiny

• John Smith - Rise and shine. Shiny as an everyday tool.

pdxrlang meetup: Chester Ismay: Creating the fivethirtyeight R data package
WeWork Custom House

Speaker: Chester Ismay (https://github.com/ismayc) - Instructional Technologist and Consultant for Data Science, Statistics, and R at Reed College

Abstract: In this talk, I will discuss the motivation behind creating a data package using the data from the stories produced by FiveThirtyEight. I’ll also walk through the process of creating a data package in R and some of the vignettes for the package that have been created by my students and others from throughout the world. Lastly, I’ll discuss some ideas (that I’d love to work with others on) for other data packages in R that can better serve the R community by helping novice and intermediate R users work with and tidy “messy” data.

pdxrlang meetup - Ted Laderas: How to not be afraid of your data - teaching EDA using Shiny
WeWork Custom House

Speaker: Ted Laderas (http://laderast.github.io/) - Instructor, Medical Informatics and Clinical Epidemiology, OHSU

Abstract: Many graduate students in the basic sciences are afraid of data exploration and cleaning, which can greatly impact their downstream analysis results. By using a synthetic dataset, some simple dplyr commands, and a shiny dashboard, we teach graduate students how to explore their data and how to handle issues that can arise (missing values, differences in units). For this talk, we'll run through a simple EDA example (combining two weight loss datasets) with a general data explorer in shiny that can be easily customized to teach specific EDA concepts.
