Shiny Contest 2020 deadline extended

2020-03-18 Mine Çetinkaya-Rundel
The original deadline for Shiny Contest 2020 was this week, but given that many of us have had lots of unexpected changes to our schedules over the last week due to the COVID-19 outbreak, we have decided to extend the deadline by two weeks. If you’ve been planning to submit an entry for the contest this week (and if history is any indicator, there may be a few of you out there), please feel free to take this additional time.

Over the years, we have loved interacting with the Shiny community and loved seeing and sharing all the exciting apps, dashboards, and interactive documents Shiny developers have produced. So last year we launched the Shiny contest and we were overwhelmed (in the best way possible!) by the 136 submissions! Reviewing all these submissions was incredibly inspiring and humbling. We really appreciate the time and effort each contestant put into building these apps, as well as submitting them as fully reproducible artifacts via RStudio Cloud. Read more →

Over the years, we have loved interacting with the Shiny community and loved seeing and sharing all the exciting apps, dashboards, and interactive documents Shiny developers have produced. We also love seeing Shiny developers openly sharing their code and process for building apps so that others can learn from them and improve their apps. Read more →

Since the release of the bookdown package in 2016, there have been a large number of books written and published with bookdown. Currently there are about 200 books (including tutorials and notes) listed on bookdown.org alone! We have also heard about other applications of bookdown based on custom templates (e.g., dissertations). As popular as bookdown is becoming, especially with teachers, researchers, and students, we know it can take a lot of time to tailor bookdown to meet the special typesetting requirements of your institution or publisher.
