On November 26th 2019, we organized a workshop on flexdashboarding in R. We attempt to organize these type of workshops to help better knowledge of data visualization and communication.

With about 60 registrations the room was full and the developed dashboards and the presented codes were very useful. We learned to program and knit dashboards with flexdashboard. Although the original workshop speaker Olga Sholderer was not available, her provided material and exercises learned us a great deal on the placement of objects, plotly and the use of icons in the dashboard.
We have previously organized workshops on Shiny and a symposium on Communicating Statistics to Different Audiences. Therefore, we encourage attendees and others interested in these activities to sign up as a member of the VVSOR (Dutch Society for Statistics and Operations Research) statistics communication section and also to join us for future workshops and events.
