"Hi Folks, Happy New Year to everyone! The next event for us is a visit by
Dr. Vaidyanathan. He has created a R library, rCharts, that interfaces with
existing Javascript graphical libraries, R-Shiny as well as other
server-side options. This makes it easier for folks to create interactive
charts with just a little R code. A portfolio of what is possible is here:

help folks understand how to create these types of charts and
visualizations. More info is on the event page including instructions on
how to load the library from GitHub. Please note he is traveling from
Montreal (as he is a Professor at McGill University), and as such the cost
