2024 Workshops Series Kick-off

We are happy to announce our 6th series of workshops, to take place in April-May 2024.

Between April and May, we are proposing again two learning paths: R & R Shiny.

Visit the current workshop page for all the details.

We focus on bringing our professional expertise to our workshops, sharing the best practices from our applied day-to-day work. We wish to provide a hands-on experience, at Mirai we believe in an experiential, agile and incremental training approach (i.e. learning by doing): i.e. apply what you learned by trying a short exercise and build a small product step by step.

Please note, in this year’s workshop series, we are scheduling dates only for the 2 most advanced workshops of the 2 paths (R & R Shiny), while we leave open the chance to join the more “for beginners” workshops, i.e. on demand. Teams and individuals wishing to follow a full path can request them. With enough attendees, the dates will be scheduled and made public.

The material and organization of our traditional Introduction to R path feature a few relevant updates:

  • as mentioned, the 2nd and 3rd workshops are available on demand
  • the Build an R package, and Becoming an R developer have been updated to reflect the state of the art set-up of renv to handle package dependencies in conjunction with Posit Public Package Manager (PPPM).
Introduction to R

Learning path: Introduction to R

From the basis of the R syntax to data manipulation, writing functions, building an R package and host it on GitHub. For solid programming foundations in R.

The R Shiny path underwent a few technical updates on various chapters as well. The updates integrate feedback we received last year, as we constantly try to improve our material and agendas thanks to your constructive comments!

  • As mentioned, the 1st and 2nd workshops are available on demand
  • the workshop Advanced Shiny Development now focuses exclusively on embedding a Shiny app in an R package using golem framework, with more details and practice
  • the advanced Dynamic UI chapter has been moved to the previous Make an Outstanding Shiny App workshop, to have a more complete look on UI/UX.
  • updates of renv package in conjunction with PPPM affect also the Bring a Shiny App to production workshop
  • new releases of rsconnect implied few changes on the way we deploy to using a renv project.
