Shiny (a web application framework for R) is an R package that makes it easy to build highly interactive web apps directly in R. It combines the computational power of R and modern visualisation techniques to create interactive applications. Harnessing this power, R users can develop Shiny apps for visualising clinical data, as well as applications that aid in study design and analysis. Shiny apps can empower non-statisticians to explore and visualise their data or perform their own analysis with methods we develop.

In this presentation we will try to understand what Shiny is, the basic structure of a Shiny app and how we can make our own Shiny app. We will look into some examples of Shiny applications that use the power of R and Shiny, for viewing the relationship between variables in multiple dimensions and altering our visualisation with real-time parameter refinement using the UI component of the app.
