Bring Your Data Analytics to Life with R and Shiny
30 Jul 2020 - 30 Jul 2020
The use of the modern day computer is extended to each and every segment of human life. This has grown to become an integral part of every aspect of human life. Be it in the sphere of modern industrial and the commercial world or in the field of medicine; from economic research and stock markets to even sports and entertainment, the contribution of the computer is magnanimous and equally significant for the growth and success of that sector. But what is it that makes the computer so useful in every case? How can a doctor or a researcher benefit from it in the same way as a sports trainer? The answer to this would be the implementation of web applications that extends both across browser based applications as well as desktop applications. Simply put, web applications are dynamic web sites combined with server side programming which provide functionalities such as interacting with users, connecting to back-end databases, and generating results to browsers. This sharing session is intended to introduce web application development using R, an open source programming language with Shiny, an open source web application framework for R. In contrast to the conventional approach, the R and Shiny combo provides a much feasible means to build web applications without any web programming skills.
