9:00 - 10:00 PM - Lessons and opportunities with Shiny for Python

Winston Chang

For the past 10 years, the R community has been able to use Shiny to bring interactive data analyses to the web. Last summer, we announced that Shiny would also be available to for Python. In this talk, I’ll discuss what we’ve learned along the way, as well as the opportunities that Shiny for Python opens up. We are at the beginning of an exciting new era for Shiny, and I hope that community of old and new Shiny users make the most of it!
