Shiny: dashboards in R

Need a snazzy dashboarding tool, and want it free or cheap? With a modicum of R and Linux knowledge, you can make interactive realtime dashboards for free that can be used in any web browser. Learn how in this session.
Conventional wisdom for project management is that you can have two out of three: fast, cheap, and good. This session presents a great tool that allows you to have all three. The only gotcha is this - you need a Linux box and you have to use some open source software called R!

This session takes you through the steps needed to build and deploy Shiny applications to a Linux environment. We will be building a SQLBits dashboard, configuring a Linux box in Azure for Shiny, and then deploying the SQLBits dashboard.
