Hi there πŸ‘‹

Welcome to my GitHub account!

I'm Colin, and (probably like a lot of people here), I love writing code.

My languages of choice are R, JavaScript and Docker. I love building infrastructures and backends.

Here are some of the things I've been working on lately:

  • πŸ“¦ {golem}, a framework for building production-grade {shiny} applications

  • πŸ“š Engineering Production-Grade Shiny Apps, a book about building {shiny} applications for production

  • πŸ“¦ {brochure}, Natively Multipage Shiny Apps

  • πŸ“¦ hordes, a NodeJS module that can call R

  • πŸ‘¨β€πŸ’» {hexmake}, a web app to design hex stickers

I also have a bunch of Docker image I maintain on my Docker hub.

I love to speak around the world, and most of my talks are available on my speakerdeck, and if you're looking for the video I try to keep the list on my website up to date.

You can learn more about me on my website where I blog on a random basis and on Twitter at @_ColinFay where I tweet quite frequently.

I probably forgot a lot of things here, so feel free to explore my profiles and website, and to contact me if you need my help!
