        Jacqueline Nolis Keynote Talk

        Over the course of my career, I've gone from knowing nothing about web development to having it be most of my job--largely thanks to the help of Shiny! Like one of those cooking recipe blog posts that spend half the page talking about the author's past and then provides you with a practical recipe, this talk will cover how I've used Shiny throughout my job and then will present practical Shiny tips. I'll discuss my past of making complex Shiny dashboards powering analytics platforms, and using Shiny to make quick machine learning POCs for stakeholders. I'll also talk about how you can make your shiny apps better with Bootstrap, CSS, and more.


          Appsilon will host a Masterclass: "Top Innovations in Shiny in 2022 - How to build user-centric applications." In this three-hour-long masterclass, participants will discover Appsilon's secret to building Shiny apps that users adopt and adore.

            Meet & Mingle

            15 minute, intermittent networking events. Randomly connect for a short, video chat session. Create and exchange your virtual business card to keep in touch! Connect with R Shiny community members from across the world.
