Description:

Have you ever come across a list of people without IDs attached? Did you have to look them up individually in your database? Do you wish there was a better way? Look no further! With the help of R, the shiny package, and information in your database, you can now match such lists to IDs quickly and painlessly. This presentation will cover how to create an interactive and user-friendly application to help solve common problems or tasks and how this creation can boost efficiency, making a mundane task a little more fun.
