Date: 2018-06-11 at 12:00
Location: Halifax, Canada

Description Snippet:

"Statistical analysis is a frequent task in several research fields such as HCI, Psychology, and Medicine. Performing statistical analysis using traditional textual programming languages like R is considered to have several advantages over GUI applications like SPSS. However, our examination of 40 analysis scripts written using current IDEs for R shows that such scripts are hard to understand and maintain, limiting their replication.

Shiny meets Electron: Turn your Shiny app into a standalone desktop app!

Location: Columbus, United States

Description Snippet:

Please bring your laptop and have R and RStudio (and the tidyverse package) installed and working. But if things don't work and you're having issues, don't worry! We're here to help (◕‿◕✿)

About this meetup:

Using Shiny in consulting can be challenging, as all deployment options involve either sending intellectual property and data to the cloud or IT involvement. When providing consultative like services to extremely large, risk-averse, enterprises this can greatly restrict one’s ability to quickly get Shiny apps into users’ hands, as engagement of IT can take months if approved at all. We’ll share how the Columbus Collaboratory team overcame these barriers to rapid deployment by coupling R Portable and Electron, a framework for creating native applications with a variety of web technologies. All the tools needed to use Electron for desktop deployment of Shiny apps will be reviewed. We’ll highlight a specific example in which these technologies were used within a large ... read more at the event page.
