   Dear colleagues,

   The second edition of the course INT= ERACTIVE DATA ANALYSIS AND
   VISUALIZATION WITH R SHINY has opened registrati= on.

   Instructor: Dr. Ashton Drew (KDV Decision Analysis LLC, USA)
   <= p>Dates and place: February 18th-22nd, 2019; Capellades (Barcelona,
   Spain)<= /p>

   Course Overview

   This course is for individuals= considering developing Shiny apps to
   deliver their research. Thus, the goa= l will be to teach the skills
   necessary to translate static products (your = current analysis in R)
   to dynamic products deliv= ered via a simple web-based graphic-user

   After a brief sur= vey of the available basic tools (widgets such as
   slider bars, check boxes,= and pick lists), we will move quickly to
   learn more advanced interactive f= eatures.

   Activities interspersed throughout the class will provide ha= nds-on
   practice with sample biological and = ecological data. By the end of
   the course, students w= ill have built a portfolio of example code and
   will have designed, construc= ted, and published at least one example
   Shiny app.

   Why S= hiny?

   Shiny turns static data products into interactive web = apps. With
   interactive and reactive data visualizations, your audience dire= ctly
   engages with your data for stronger communication and better
   understan= ding. The Shiny apps can easily be launched directly to the
   web via shinyap= ps.io or Shiny Server to be run by anyone (they don't
   need to downloa= d your data or have R!).

   Other Shiny examples:&= #160;[1]K-mea   ns (statistics), [2]TreeViewer (visualization of phylogenetic
   trees), = ;[3]Word Cloud (generator of word clouds).
