This workshop will show how interactive visualizations can be created directly within R for use within web pages, R markdown documents, R notebooks, or Shiny. This hands-on workshop will provide specific examples of creating interactive visualizations using popular JavaScript libraries without needing to know JavaScript. JavaScript libraries that will be shown within R include: plotly, leaflet, DataTables, highcharts, D3. The workshop will work through examples as a group and also give time for users to create interactive visualizations on their own. Individuals will leave with example R scripts and resulting output for reference later on.

Prerequisites: Beginner R knowledge; knowledge of the tidyverse helpful, but not required. No prior JavaScript experience required.

Participants will be expected to bring their own laptops.
