Getting Started with Shiny Online Workshop

May 5, 2022, 8:45 am

The Biometry Hub is excited to announce a new workshop in their workshop series: Getting started with Shiny – an introduction to developing interactive web-based applications in R.

What is Shiny?

Shiny  is a package that allows R users to create interactive and dynamic web-based applications, without requiring an understanding of HTML, CSS or JavaScript. If you can code something in the R language, you can create an app for it.

What does this workshop cover?

This workshop will give you the ability to create an interactive application that can be used by people with minimal computing knowledge, along with the skills to continue learning and building more complex Shiny apps.

Who is this workshop for?

Any R users can benefit from this workshop. This workshop is for people who are writing a thesis and want to create an application to demonstrate a process, to those whose day-to-day job is data exploration and testing, or those whose bosses only use Excel. Shiny allows not only the sharing of results, but the sharing of the methodology used to create results without specialist training.

Why should I attend this workshop?

While there are many great tutorials on the internet, nothing is better than someone sitting you down and showing you step-by-step the essential pieces of information to start the process. Weeks of internet research and trial-and-error can be condensed into a single workshop. This workshop is being hosted by someone who made mistake after mistake, so you don’t have to. There is a core understanding of Shiny, that once explained makes things straight forward. Once some of the fundamental functions and their behaviour are explained, the rest of Shiny becomes far more understandable.

If you have further questions about this workshop, please contact the Biometry Training team.
