Building Shiny Apps
Building Shiny Apps
Web development for R users
About the Book
The aim of this book is to quickly get you started into Shiny web application development. We will cover the main tools to make you feel confident of keeping up on your own.
The book is aimed at hands-on individuals that want to get their job done and need to get familiar with the tools quickly, whether hackers, entrepeneurs or scientists.
Because of what I learned [...], I got a consulting gig with a large microfinance bank building a Shiny app along with typical modelling.
Pablo Maldonado inspired me to learn more about this software and eventually to develop my own web application.
