Appsilon ShinyConf 2023

ShinyConf 2023 begins this week! With a great lineup of speakers and showcases this year, we thought we’d recap a small handful of last year’s recorded talks.

2022 was a big year for R Shiny. Our Appsilon R Shiny Conference resulted in close to 20 hours of materials covering tech talks, showcases, and projects – all spread out over 31 videos. The best part – you can watch them for free on YouTube.

All videos bring something new to the table, and this article will make a short recap on 7 of them. The list isn’t ordered, and you’re free to read only the sections you find the most interesting. Without much ado, let’s dive straight into some of the R Shiny content of ShinyConf 2022!

How to Make a Video Game in Shiny – Idea to Implementation

In 2021, Appsilon’s R Shiny Senior Software Engineer Marcin Dubel built a Shark Attack application which won a Grand Prize in RStudio Shiny Contest. This 30-minute talk discusses his winning strategy.

Here’s a broad list of topics covered in this masterclass:

  • How to build user-centric applications? Users are the reason for the existence of every application, and the best way to make your app successful is to listen to the feedback provided by your users. (Anna Skrzydło)
  • How to build Shiny testing architecture? Shiny is an excellent tool for building fast application prototypes, but as your app grows, it will need a proper testing architecture. You’ll learn how Appsilon does it for Fortune 100 companies. (Marcin Dubel)
  • From Base Shiny to Jaw-Dropping Interfaces – In this part, you’ll learn how to make your dashboards stand out by building dashing dashboard components, from existing ready-to-use solutions to building fully-customizable components from the ground up. (Pedro Silva)
