Build an App in a Container, and Deploy It

Research
Description: 

In this workshop, you will learn how to use Docker to build a basic, interactive app in Plotly and R.

You will learn how to

  • Launch a Docker environment

  • Run an app in that environment

  • Best practices for rebuilding containers with updated code

  • Deploying your app to the cloud

No prior knowledge of R is required. While our example code will be written in R, this class focuses on containerized deployment of lightweight, interactive apps.
