About this course

While notebooks are a great format for sharing data work, they’re not very easy to interact with 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: building interactive data-based dashboards and projects for the web!

In this course, you’ll start by learning the fundamentals of working with Shiny. Then you’ll dive into lessons on more complex topics, learning about programming server logic for Shiny, and then programming the UI for your interactive dashboards. The final lesson will show you some more ways to customize the design of things you build in Shiny, and cover how to get your apps online and shared

The Shiny course wraps up with a guided project that’ll also be helpful for your career: you’ll build a portfolio website for yourself using Shiny!

By the end of this course, you will:

  • Build a web-based portfolio site for your data work
  • Be able to set up a Shiny server and build apps
  • Understand how to program a UI to make interactive web dashboards in R
