I have been away from the blog for a bit – during the time I normally spend blogging and thinking about blogging, I’ve been spending trying to get to know a new tool for my R toolbox, a web app platform for R called Shiny.
Those of you who have been around for a while are familiar with my bizarre love of the intersection of information and design that data visualization represents, especially given that I am neither a statistician nor an artist.
(The heart wants what the heart wants!)
As demonstrated previously on this blog, I learn best by doing (hence my 30 day visualization sprint wherein I took a dive into the R library ggplot2) – so after going through the Shiny tutorial, I gave it a try, and pushed live my first ever web app, a super rudimentary user-adjustable visualization of the recent Support Driven compensation survey.
So, here’s a link. Check it out. I would genuinely and with a full heart appreciate your feedback.
