Building Interactive Graphs with ggplot2 and Shiny (R) by Christophe Ladroue, Packt Publishing Video Review
I have just finished watching Building Interactive Graphs with ggplot2 and Shiny (these are R language packages) by Christophe Ladroue, Packt Publishing.
Apart from me always saying video is a much better alternative to learn new things than books, at least more effective, productive, and effortless, especially in such applications as the data visualization this video compilation is just outstanding.
I highly recommend it to a very wide audience, from students beginning data science or statistics to mature data analysts or even seasoned enterprise business intelligence professionals.
I am planning using it myself in the future for my inhouse performance analysis monitoring solution. I frankly needed to close the gap and this video was an opportunity shot that worked – Shiny was exactly that missing piece of the puzzle that allowed me to close the circle: this R package allows rapid web interface development and even hosting the entire solution. The author demonstrates how to position the graphs and axis, smooth the curves, make the graphs more visually digestible, also shows how to download and upload data files, remove outliers, color your graphs, and then builds a complete solution for you.
Christophe’s soft voice (with a moderate British accent, but pleasant to hear) and unbias content delivery makes you replay this video once and once more.
This video is a gem. 5 out of 5, 100 out of 100. Get it.
