Coding Club

Demo shiny app

Do you want to take your R coding skills to the next level in a fun atmosphere where we learn by doing? Join the Coding Club!

We’ll be starting from the very basics to use the shiny R package to create an interactive web app that can read from a Google Form and display tables and plots describing your data.

When: Every other Wednesday 14:00-15:00, starting 6 October 2021.


Do I have enough experience?

Don’t worry if you’re new to R coding; as long as you can open RStudio and load the shiny package, you’ll be able to participate. All levels are welcome, including undergraduate students and staff.

Will it be recorded?

Yes, if you’re staff or a student at the University of Glasgow, join the Methods & Metascience Team with the code j2z7m4w in Teams to access recordings on the Coding Club channel.

What computing resources do I need?

You need to have access to R and RStudio. We will use these packages to start: shiny, shinydashboard, tidyverse. See instructions for installing on your own computer or use a university computer or RStudio Cloud.

I have more questions

Join the Methods & MetaScience Team (it’s open to all at UofG) with the join code j2z7m4w in Teams and post questions in the Coding Club channel or email
