“Having studied Data Science since April 2014, felt it a good time to get to know Rstudio’s Shiny Server! So sourced data.gov.au’s Disaster Events and built an interactive dashboard. Writing up my experiences as a way of introduction, in the hope it might help others to learn Shiny Server.”
First requirement is to have a fair understanding of R. There are a ton of courses online, such as on Rstudio, EDX and Coursera. My favourite course is MIT’s Analytics Edge. As a currently archived course you can complete it self paced, although assessments are disabled.
Next to complete the Shiny Tutorial. It is very comprehensive and the only requirement is Rstudio, naturally. Previously the tutorial comprised 3 parts, but now are presented in the single video lasting a bit of 2 hours 25 minutes. I highly recommend it.
