Re: Shiny for Pharmacometrics Workshop PAGE 2018

Hey, I would consider attending. I have no particular thoughts to share.
This year, I think I may wind up leading an initiative to develop a Shiny
App for data exploration (e.g. Dose-PK, Dose-PD, PKPD, with continuous,
binary, etc.). My vision is that we'd start small and gradually grow. So a
course like this seems great.

For me, what might be most useful is just a whirlwind tour of all kinds of
cool things people can do with Shiny, and then an introduction into some of
the most important tools and packages. And a little bit of hands on work,
