Shiny is a framework with the R programming language to create interactive documents, applets and web interfaces. They allow you to provide graphical interfaces to your data and analyses. Due to the interactive nature of Shiny, you can't just use it like other R code.
In this course we cover all basics needed to develop your own interfaces:
The concept of reactive programming with Shiny
Standard structure of a shiny app
Creating a basic layout of the interface
Controlling input and output with widgets
Using reactive expressions
Modern layouts with shinydashboard
Making your app available to others
The participants should have a good knowledge of the object types of R (vector, matrix, data frame, list), control of code flow (if-else structures, loop structures and the apply family) and should be able to write basic functions in R.
The course will use R version 3.5.3 or higher and RStudio version 1.1.463 or higher.
You need to bring your own laptop with the correct version of R installed. Please also install the packages shiny and shinydashboard.
