I’ve just published a video course with Packt Publishing about ggplot2 and Shiny!
In just two hours, you’ll get to learn the popular R packages ggplot2 and Shiny, as well as how to put them together to build interactive webpages. And all that from R.
The course consists of short videos (around 2 or 3 minutes) that explain one concept at the time. Each video comes with the relevant code, and pointers to go further in your own time.
It’s divided in 8 chapters:
- Getting Started with ggplot2 [15:00 minutes]
- Understanding Basic Plots [11:33 minutes]
- Using Conditional Plots [09:32 minutes]
- Using Statistics in Our Plot [09:49 minutes]
- Customizing Your Graphs [11:18 minutes]
- Shiny – Part 1 [14:39 minutes]
- Shiny – Part 2 [12:25 minutes]
- Putting Everything Together [12:17 minutes]
In the last chapter, we build a multi-page dashboard, with adaptive controls, showing some ggplot2 graphs produced on the fly.
Here is a sample video “Customizing the Color Palette for Continuous Variables” with ggplot2:
If you’ve been meaning to learn ggplot2 (for making nice looking graphs) or Shiny (for building interactive websites using R alone), but never got round to it, this is the course for you!
