Developing Data Products

Data Science,

A data product is the production output from a statistical analysis. Data products automate complex analysis tasks or use technology to expand the utility of a data informed model, algorithm or inference. This course covers the basics of creating data products using Shiny, R packages, and interactive graphics. The course will focus on the statistical fundamentals of creating a data product that can be used to tell a story about data to a mass audience.

great course

Great course!

Thanks professors for sharing this great course.

This is a great course.

Great course.

I didn't learn many data science concepts in this class a great course, I know a lot of new stuff Great experience This course is very hands-on and good for building quick prototypes.

Great Course This course is packed with rich content that draws on all of the data science concepts in the other 8 courses.

great course Rewarding learning experience.

But the stuff they teach is surely great and makes you appreciate the beauty of R Great course, just like the others in the certification.

Great Course I am a developer and know how to create advanced websites.

This course has less use for me as in my day job i create sophisticated websites Very useful Great course, a lot of information!

Great Course.

Great Course!!!

Great course!!

Great course, practical and very informative A lot of useful parts for visualization here!

data products

This is a great course if you want to learn how to develop data products that others can use.

The course materials cover presenting data products and the course project requires the student to develop a data product in R/Shiny that is hosted on the internet.

It covers production of data products (as the name suggests), such as web-based data apps using Shiny and HTML-based presentations using Slidify, among other things.

Good overview of tools to use in rstudio to produce data products.

Especially liked shiny: efficient tool to produce useful data products on the web.

Not really sure why making presentations in R would make sense given that we have Powerpoint, Keynote and Canva available to create stunning presentations for our data products.

I was expecting more examples related to the industry, such as data products for data journals, telcos, etc.

Interesting course because you learn how to develop applications in real time I have learned a lot about how to work interactively with R. Using shiny and plotly, I found it very easy to work with data for freshers I learn a lot of building data products and presentation from this course, which later can be used on my analysis or academic work.

Good course on Data Products, I learned a lot about R Packages, shiny and the leaflet library.

very useful to know for deploying data products to business users Good learning experience.

Great course, I just missed some material on distributing data products as files or objects.

So it is starting to be important to also deliver data products as files to the e.g.

Would be nice to add some optional references, reading materials or videos covering "Creating Data Products with Python and Python stacks" Very nice overview of available tools for high quality plots, reports, presentations and interactive web apps.

Really good course covering wide range of topics making it to be aptly called Developing Data Products course!

data science specialization

This is the 9th course in teh JHU Data Science Specialization for me and it's also the one I enjoyed the most.

This is the final course before the capstone in the Data Science specialization from Johns Hopkins on Coursera.

The lecture is not so fluent taught than other coursers in the specialization Compared to the other classes in the JHU Data Science specialization, this one is pretty laid back.

This is a very useful course in the Data Science Specialization that teaches us how to present the results of our data analysis using Shiny, Slidify and other R based data presentation tools.

After completing the Data Science Specialization courses with the course of Developing Data Products, I finally understand how important and useful R Programming is as a tool for research, data managing and inference making and for communicating results.

Developing data products is the final course in the 9-part data science specialization offered by John Hopkins on Coursera.

Unlike previous courses in the data specialization, this course is not taught by a single professor: each of the 3 professors involved in the data science specialization leads a few lectures.

It's nice to be aware of the kinds of tools that are out there and have some basic information on each one to get started, but in keeping with the theme of the entire data science specialization, coverage is only skin deep.

Now that I've gone through all 9 courses in the data science specialization, I can say that on the whole, the data science track is disappointing.

A cynic might question John Hopkins' motivation in offering the data science specialization: making 9 short courses that they can rerun each month and charge $50 a pop to anyone interested in verified certificates smells a bit like an experimental cash grab.

shiny apps

Gives you a good basic introduction to plot_ly and shiny apps.

Good range of topics - updates to content would be useful --> eg Great course to consolidate everything that we have learned before good introduction to developing R presentations and shiny apps.

From this course I took away how to make shiny apps.

I particularly enjoyed learning Leaflet and Shiny Apps.

Love this course and enjoyed the shiny apps building exercise.

However, the course project does a good job to get your feet wet with Shiny Apps.

This one's a keeper -- learning to do both Shiny apps and Slidify/RPres will be quite useful in the near future.

Brian (the teacher) does an awesome job explaining the concepts and how the functions and scripts in R work and interact with each other to bring about shiny apps and other visualizations.

This basically covers building shiny apps (needed for the capstone), leaflet (maps), making presentations in RStudio - then gets lost in R Packages and Swirlify which are not very useful here.

This course helped to get the knowledge how to create shiny apps and r packages.
