ShinyConf Data for Good presentations

Tomorrow marks the beginning of the second annual ShinyConf 2023 by Appsilon!

ShinyConf aims to achieve three main objectives:

  1. showcasing recent advancements in R Shiny technology,
  2. promoting community engagement among Shiny developers from around the world,
  3. and providing a global platform for long-term knowledge sharing and application of state-of-the-art Shiny technology.

ShinyConf is an annual virtual event hosted by Appsilon with support from Posit that brings together a global community of Shiny developers to learn, network, and collaborate.

R Shiny Projects with a Positive Impact featured at ShinyConf 23


GeNorms is an R Shiny app developed by Emmanuel Olamijuwon that aims to improve gender equity and social values in sub-Saharan Africa.

The app leverages several R packages for data science and a package of UI helpers to collect user responses and provide additional information to help individuals with less equitable attitudes improve their knowledge and attitudes toward gender equality. GeNorms has the potential to promote gender equitable norms across African countries while also challenging other harmful social norms.

ODAPES’ Mission is to Democratize Digital Agriculture by giving all farmers, farming service providers, and local cooperatives access to a low-cost, cutting-edge, and customized Digital Agriculture App.

ODAPES is a low-code extension for R Shiny developed by Michael C Rubin to democratize digital agriculture, creating affordable technology and local income opportunities. The system includes a modular R Shiny App skeleton and a second R Shiny App called ApplicatoR, which allows junior developers to create production-grade apps with access to different microservices like APIs, GIS algorithms, and RMarkdown reports.

The system has been successfully prototyped with clients across Latin America, providing regional risk maps, yield forecasts, and crop treatment risk indices. Learn more here.

Future Forests

As part of our Data for Good (D4G) initiative, we collaborated with the Institute of Dendrology of the Polish Academy of Sciences and built a data visualization application to show how different climate scenarios will affect European forests. It provides a sobering look into the future, where parts of the continent become uninhabitable for some tree species as shown by research.

The Shiny app lets users explore European tree species’ responses to shifting environmental conditions caused by the climate crisis in three different climate change scenarios – optimistic, moderate, and pessimistic ones. Learn more here.
