I am not sure how many of you have seen this Business Insider article.  It is basically about a shiny app created by Joshua Katz as NC State.  It is really fun playing with shiny app.

With nearly a million facebook likes this web app built using R with the shiny is a clear demonstration of how effective and professional shiny can be.

Though surprisingly even though the app is hosted by amazon web server it seems a bit laggy.  Given the immense traffic the article is generating I hope Joshua has some plan to pay amazon.

Though I cannot be sure because I do not have access to the code, the amazing thing is that the whole server side code developed by Joshua was probably no more than 100-200 lines of R script.
