While notebooks are great for sharing data work, they’re not very user-friendly for viewers who don’t have programming skills. With the popular Shiny package, we can showcase our data work in a more attractive and accessible way: by building interactive, data-based dashboards and projects for the web!
In this course, you’ll learn the fundamentals of working with Shiny. Then you’ll explore more complex topics such as learning about programming server logic for Shiny and programming the UI for your interactive dashboards. You’ll also learn various ways to customize the design of elements you build in Shiny,. Finally, you’ll learn how to get your apps online and how to share them.
Best of all, you’ll learn by doing — you’ll practice and get feedback directly in the browser. At the end of the course, you will complete a guided project that asks you to build a portfolio website for yourself using Shiny!
- Reading the structure of a Shiny app
- Setting up a Shiny server and building apps
