Create your own Visual Resume with my new Shiny App

Shiny Link: https://ndphillips.shinyapps.io/Visual_Resume/

How much do I love R? Enough that I maintain several ‘fun R’ projects. One of my favorites is my Visual Resume generator – which creates an individualised visual resume based on a person’s education and job history (and publications and research interests, etc.). I was inspired by this blog post on infographic resumes to build a version in R. For example, here is a copy of my visual resume (as of January 2014):

Since so many people like this, I decided to create a Shiny application where everyone can create their own. A beta version of the app is now live at https://ndphillips.shinyapps.io/Visual_Resume/. Play around with it and please send me feedback and recommendations for improvement!
