This is the 3rd Guided Project in the "Programming for Everyone" series. In this Guided Project, we will learn how to work with data. Specifically, we will learn how to organize data in data frames and use the "dplyr" package to process data. We will also learn how Shiny lays out the UI for Web Apps. We will put this knowledge to use to enhance the Shiny app that we created in the 2nd Guided Project. Specifically we will add the ability to support multiple cities. This Guided Project was created by a Coursera community member.
