January 2019 - R/Shiny
Shiny is an R package that makes it easy to build interactive web apps directly from R. We create user interface and server using R and Shiny app complies the codes to display the application on the web. The Shiny app executes R code on the backend and the outputs displayed in the user interface depend on the user inputs.
In this talk we will go over the basic features and workings of a Shiny application.
Few things you will need:
- Relatively recent version of R and RStudio
- R libraries/packages needed:

install.packages(c("shiny", "tidyverse", "gapminder"))
