Earlier this month I delivered a presentation to the Omaha R user group.  Originally I had planned to write out the major themes of the presentation into a series of blog posts. It later occurred to me that I could instead combine the content into a short book.   So, using Rstudio and the bookdown R package, I put together the material and published it out to bookdow.org.

The book is titled "Building Web Applications with Shiny and SQL Server."  If you develop Shiny Applications and your back end is a relational database, then this book is for you.  The demos and code snippets are written in T-SQL, Microsoft SQL Server dialect of SQL, but the core concepts are applicable across all RDBMS systems.

Data Scientists using R are the primary audience.  Database Developers, BI Developers, Software Engineers, Data Analysts and Managers wanting to learn more about Shiny Database applications will also benefit from the material.

Here is a link to the book: https://bookdown.org/msharkey3434/ShinyDB_Book/
