Setting up your first Shiny app

*** NOTE TIME CHANGE: NOW TAKING PLACE AT 15:00! *** Shiny is an R package that makes it easy to build interactive web apps straight from R. In this tutorial, I’m going to walk you through the absolute basics of setting up a shiny app, starting with the example built into RStudio. I’m not going to explain yet how shiny apps are structured, the goal is to just get something up and running, and give you some familiarity with the layout of a fairly simple app. The tutorial will take place in a computer lab, so there is no need to bring a laptop, but if you do, please make sure you have installed R and RStudio before you arrive. You don’t need to have any other familiarity with R.
