​DAMA Calgary Chapter November talk:

 "inteRactive – A guide to interactivity in R”"

By Patrick Marchand of Quadrus Development Inc.

Thursday November 22nd @8AM at the Groundswell offices in Calgary

Abstract:

 
As a language for statistical analysis, R is hard to beat for data scientists. One of the benefits of R is that it is an interactive language so you can work closely with your data. But just how interactive is it?

In this follow-up R presentation, we'll look at the different ways that make R an interactive environment to work in. Warming up with some the basics of acquiring a dataset and some data cleanup, this presentation will look at interaction with the R language, followed by how to create interactive data visualizations (bringing static charts to life), and finishing with an application that provides interactivity using standard (and perhaps non-standard) GUI controls.
