Shiny is an R package that allows you to create interactive web apps with customizable user interfaces. With Shiny, you can build interactive data visualizations, simple data analysis tools, or even complex customized apps using just R code - no web development skills needed! These apps can be hosted on your own server or for free on RStudio's hosting service. This session will provide a hands-on introduction to Shiny by building a simple web app for visualizing data. Attendees will learn how to build a user interface and create the underlying R functionality.
Prerequisites: Proficiency with R; attendees should be comfortable with writing their own R code and troubleshooting errors.
Laptops will be provided for in-person attendees, but if you'd like to follow along by webinar, please follow the installation instructions before the session.
