Training – Hands-on with R Shiny – November 26th

screen-shot-2014-09-18-at-10-09-14-pm

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 well as on your own server.

The Oak3 Academy is an IT Learning Center providing hands-on, intensive training and coaching to help students develop the skills they need for a successful career as an Information Technology Professional or as a knowledge worker (end-user of software). Our goal is to provide the highest quality training and knowledge transfer that enables a person to start or enhance his or her career as an IT professional or knowledge worker, in a short period of time. We therefore offer knowledge assimilation, facilitate expertise transfer and provide a rewarding learning experience. Our training solutions are designed to help students learn faster, master the latest information technologies and perform smarter.

Prerequisites: Previous experience with R is required, no HTML or CSS knowledge is needed.

Training – Hands-on with SparkR – Brussels – November 24

sparkr_custom_logo

As of June 2015 SparkR is integrated in Spark-1.4.0. However this is still work in progress: in the original version, no Spark MLlib machine learning algorithms were accessible via R. In Spark-1.5.0 it is already possible to create generalized linear models (glm).

In this one-day SparkR course, you will understand how Spark is working under the hood (MapReduce paradigm, lazy evaluation, …) and learn how to use SparkR. You will start setting up a local Spark cluster and access it via R. Next up you will learn basic data transformations in SparkR, either via R code or via SparkSql. Finally we will use SparkR’s glm and compare it to R’s glm and we will implement our own machine learning algorithm.
