The workshop will be an introduction to Shiny, and will let participants make a web app to graphically explore a data set. Shiny lets you include almost any output from R within an app, and manipulate it with widgets. This makes it easy to create interactive graphs, maps and dashboards.
The workshop will be debuted at the forthcoming Research Software Engineer Association conference in Birmingham in September. After this the workshop will be extended and added to Research IT's collection of taught courses for the next academic year.
