Introduction to Shiny App
Shiny apps are web applications that react to user input and provide a visual representation of datasets. They are a great way to make large datasets more accessible to the public and share research findings.
In this workshop, you will learn what Shiny apps are and when it is appropriate to use them. Then, you will learn about the structure of Shiny apps before building a Shiny app from a minimal skeleton structure in R. The main goal of this workshop is to provide hands on experience building a Shiny app to help set you up to build your own!
To participate fully you will need to install the latest versions of R and RStudio on your computer before the workshop:
- Install R from https://cran.rstudio.com/
- Install RStudio from https://rstudio.com/products/rstudio/download/#download
