The past few weeks I have been working on the Coursera course "Building Data Projects." They introduce some great tools for building a data app, one of which I have been meaning to try for quite some time - Shiny Apps. Shiny in an application framework that allows the creation of sweet data apps only using some "basic" r scripting and a little understanding of how a user would need to input data. Here's my current working POC for a business intelligence project calculator. Hopefully I'll be able to ad some information later around how I made it.
