What I Learned from Porting my Viral Website from .NET to shiny

Recorded at NY R Conference 2020 | August 14, 2020

In 2016 I created Tweet Mashup, a website that lets you combine the tweets of two different people. After spending a year making it in .NET, when I launched the site it became an immediate sensation and was mentioned in places like the Verge. Years later, I was getting more and more frustrated maintaining the F# code and decided to see if I could recreate it in Shiny. Doing so would require having Shiny integrate with the Twitter API in ways that hadn’t be done by anyone before. Could I pull it off? Come to this talk to find out!
