Build an App in a Container and Deploy It


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.


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
