Shiny is a framework for making interactive web applications and beautiful data dashboards entirely in R. Developed by RStudio, Shiny translates R code into HTML, CSS, and Javascript so you don't have to. In this tutorial you will make and deploy a Shiny app using open-source NBA data. Along the way you will learn about how Shiny works, how to debug your code when syntax gets tricky, and how to integrate Shiny with the plotting libraries ggplot2 and plotly.

Please bring your laptops so you can code as you go!
