Why this workshop?

Taking your R Shiny app from an analytical idea or research output to a fully operational piece of software accessed by many users can be highly frustrating and is often where things fall short despite skill and enthusiasm. Core reason is that additional skillsets are required that draw from software engineering (or DevOps) practices to develop truly high-performing and professional-grade apps that meet requirements of a professional context. Interested in closing this gap and progressing your R Shiny skills? Then this workshop is for you!


Who should attend

This training will dive deep into the tools and techniques available to take your R Shiny applications from good to great. This includes topics like, code modularisation, performance tuning, testing strategies, security and linking to various data sources.

You may already have some R Shiny applications in the works and want some guidance on how to take them to the next level. Potentially you have some upcoming projects where you consider using R Shiny and you want to ensure you have a strong understanding of the possibilities. If so, then this workshop is for you!

This workshop does assume familiarity with R and prior experience with R Shiny, either acquired on your own or through attending our Introduction or Advanced R Shiny Masterclass, which will be offered online in early 2024.
