Web Tools, Dashboard Development and Deployment

Traditional data-driven reports are static, difficult to update as additional data is acquired, and challenging to distribute. Though we live in the 21st century, reports and papers often adhere to 20th century technology foundations. This module will teach participants how to build and deploy interactive dashboards that can be interrogated directly, updated automatically, and shared easily.

  • In session 1, participants learn how to build a basic data exploration dashboard using R's shiny package.
  • In session 2, participants learn advanced techniques for making their dashboards as flexible and impressive as possible.
  • In session 3, participants learn how to deploy their dashboards to the web.
