Join us for this hands-on training with R Shiny that will be held at the European Data Innovation Hub on November 26th.
The AI & Data Science Community of Belgium
Shiny lets you create nice reactive web applications on top of R computations without any web development skills required. In this two-days Shiny course you will create your own sophisticated application and learn how to deploy it.
We start off easy by learning how to control the layout of your application and how to add widgets. Next up we will learn about reactivity. What options does your application have to react on user input: immediately or via submit buttons. During the course, applications will get more sophisticated by adding entire R scripts and input data. You will also learn how to return results to your users: displaying results, downloading pdf’s or other file formats, mailing results, … Moreover we will go into detail on how to interact with the results. For example via hovering over or clicking on plots.
At the end you will learn how to deploy your web application on shinyapps.io as…

We will have a special meetup about Using Open data to promote Data Innovation on Thursday, November 26, 2015 @VUB. Here is a Comprehensive List of Open Data Portals from Around the World.
DataPortals.org is the most comprehensive list of open data portals in the world. It is curated by a group of leading open data experts from around the world – including representatives from local, regional and national governments, international organisations such as the World Bank, and numerous NGOs.
The alpha version of DataPortals.org was launched at OKCon 2011 in Berlin. We have plenty of useful improvements and features in the pipeline, which will be launched over the coming months.
If you have an idea for a feature you think we should add, please let us know via the discussion forum.
The Open Definition sets out principles that define “openness” in relation to data and content.
It makes precise the meaning of “open” in the terms “open data” and “open content” and thereby ensures quality and encourages compatibility between different pools of open material.
It can be summed up in the statement that:
“Open means anyone can freely access, use, modify, and share for any purpose(subject, at most, to requirements that preserve provenance and openness).”
Put most succinctly:
“Open data and content can be freely used, modified, and shared by anyone forany purpose”
