Event Details

Sciometrx is excited to offer a brand-new (public) workshop built off interating the private on-site Shiny workshops. This in an intermediate level course designed to get scientists productive with understanding and developing shiny apps. Heavy linkage back to modernized tidyverse-drive workflows will demonstrate best practices in how to integrate analytic and simulation-based workflows to a variety of application types, ranging from simpler developer tooling to full-blown decision support tools.

There will be required pre-workshop material provided that covers the core elements of the Tidyverse for Pharmacometrics and introductory shiny material. This will come in the form of written material, video lectures, and interactive hands on over the two months proceeding the workshop. This will allow the workshop to immediately dive into building applications.

 

By the end of the workshop all participants should be able to:

1.     Understand the fundamentals of data structures and make design decisions regarding which are most suitable for the application at hand

2.     Choose the appropriate shiny implementation (flexdashboard, miniUI, normal)

3.     Use new libraries developed to replace cumbersome or slow-running legacy internal scripts.

4.     Quickly prototype applications ready for deployment

5.     Be able to think ‘like an R programmer’ to better understand shared code or produce code that can be confidently shared among the entire group that follows best practices.
