R / Shiny User Survey

December 16, 2015

(This article was first published on R-Chart, and kindly contributed to R-bloggers)

I have been using R for a few years and have been amazed at the variety of people who use the language.  R has an unusually diverse and creative community.   If you are an R user, I would really like to learn a bit more about how you use R and Shiny technologies.  If you use R but don’t use Shiny – that’s OK – please fill out the survey as well!

The survey is on google docs.  No login required:  http://goo.gl/forms/TtA71XdsUc

Please forward this link on to others who use R.  More data is better!

I plan on providing an analysis of the results in an upcoming post.  Thanks for participating!

UPDATE:  There has been a great response so far!  Most traffic has been coming through R-Bloggers or Google, so please share the link with others in the R community to ensure we get as many folks participating as possible.

I will leave the poll open until early next week and will begin analyzing results after this time.

UPDATE 2: Its Christmas Eve, and the poll has been closed.  Here are a couple of quick notes on the easily quantifiable results:

  • There were 377 respondents to the survey.
  • Over half of those who responded have been using R 2-5 years.
  • More than 3/4 of the respondents use R on Windows.
  • More than 3/4 of all respondents have created a Shiny Application and 65% have deployed it.
  • More than 80% used the Shiny docs to learn the platform.  
More analysis will be provided in a few days.  Thanks to those who participated!
