5:30 - 6:30 PM - Say goodbye to unnecessary waiting: mastering asynchronous programming in Shiny

Veerle van Leemput

Are you tired of watching your Shiny app grind to a halt because of single, overloaded R session? And do you want to take your app to the next level? Then this keynote talk is for you! Join Veerle as she takes you on a journey through the world of asynchronous programming in Shiny. Let’s face it, nobody likes waiting around for an app to load. Today’s users expect almost instantaneous results and as a Shiny developer you need to make sure you meet those expectations. With asynchronous programming, you can keep your Shiny app running smoothly, even when your R session is busy with multiple tasks. Veerle will introduce you to powerful packages like future, promises, callR and coro that will help you break free from the constraints of a single R session where tasks are executed in the traditional and synchronous way. By the end of this keynote talk, you’ll be ready to start programming asynchronously and creating Shiny apps with improved efficiency, speed and user experience!
