<h2>Vote for the Winner of Appsilon's Internal Shiny Contest</h2> Election season has been stressful for everyone – this is your chance to vote on something a bit more light-hearted. <span data-preserver-spaces="true">At <a href="https://appsilon.com/shiny/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">Appsilon</a>, we wanted to prove that with the <a href="https://appsilon.com/shiny-semantic-0-4-0-update/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer"><code>shiny.semantic</code></a> open-source package, it's possible to create a great looking and high-quality Proof of Concept Shiny app in one day. So, we recently ran an internal contest to see who could create the best <code>shiny.semantic</code> PoC in under 24 hours. <strong>You get to vote for the winner!</strong></span> <blockquote><span data-preserver-spaces="true">Which shiny.semantic PoC is your favorite? </span><a class="editor-rtfLink" href="https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSeeuzD76vVogyh9yFjcodCu0JiYrZsqFz_JmXJRDS7uqa2HUg/viewform" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer"><span data-preserver-spaces="true">You can view the submissions and place your vote here.</span></a> As development time was very limited, please be advised that most of these apps are desktop only.</blockquote> <span data-preserver-spaces="true">Here are the contest rules:</span> <ul><li><span data-preserver-spaces="true">Participants must use the <a href="https://appsilon.com/shiny-semantic-0-4-0-update/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer"><code>shiny.semantic</code> R package</a></span></li><li><span data-preserver-spaces="true">PoC's must be built by a single person</span></li><li><span data-preserver-spaces="true">Development time must not exceed 24 hours</span></li></ul> <span data-preserver-spaces="true">We've asked <a href="https://appsilon.com/appsilon-data-science-is-now-an-rstudio-full-service-certified-partner/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">our friends at RStudio</a> to choose the "Most Technically Impressive PoC" and the "Most Creatively Impressive PoC."

Upload your picture or use the random button to start. </span> <span data-preserver-spaces="true">You can then use the sidebar to refine different parameters such as the generated grid's size, the base element type, and other color options.

Two players try to find as many pairs of R package hexes (coming from both Appsilon and RStudio) as they can. </span> <span data-preserver-spaces="true">The app will count their scores and show who won the game. Semantic Memory is based on various <code>shiny.semantic</code> components and uses features that come with the FomanticUI, such as the mechanism responsible for revealing and hiding cards. </span><span data-preserver-spaces="true">You can test the application </span><a class="editor-rtfLink" href="https://demo.appsilon.ai/apps/semantic_memory/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer"><span data-preserver-spaces="true">here</span></a><span data-preserver-spaces="true">.</span> <blockquote>Want to see more high-quality Shiny Dashboard examples?
