Building rich analytic web apps has never been easier

We’re entering a golden age of the “analytics developer.” Cutting edge companies like AirBnB, Apple, and S&P are no longer buying off-the-shelf BI software. Instead, they build their own targeted BI platforms that succeed where traditional Big BI falls flat: Agility, collaboration, browser experience, and web-based data visualization. If your company strives to change the world and break ahead of competition, it’s unlikely that canned, off-the-shelf BI software will give you an edge.

With tools like Shiny (for R) or Dash (for Python), plus a flourishing ecosystem of online data viz, it has never been easier to rapidly deploy rich analytic web apps.

You too can be an analytics developer! 3 analytics developer master classes are coming up in NYC, November 16-17:


Learn to build rich analytic apps in Python with only a few hundred lines of code.



Learn about “D3 for Enterprise” and how to efficiently build data visualization products in JavaScript.



Learn to build online “stats apps” in R that have rich, interactive controls and data visualization.


Over 2 days, you’ll master the skills to build complex, analytic web apps in the browser using your language of choice (Python, R, or JavaScript). These master classes are taught by the creators of Plotly and staffed with support engineers to ensure all skill levels are accommodated.
