Testimonials

 

Google Analytics / CausalImpact Shiny App

Mason is fantastic to work with and produced a great application for us. His expertise in Shiny and R is fantastic, and he was able to meet all our requirements with no issues. We had limited knowledge of R so relied heavily on Mason to advise on the best way to produce and build the app.


401(k) Back-testing API

We chose Modern Research Consulting because Mason very quickly understood our product concept and the nature of the work that was needed. Without much background on what we did and were looking for, Mason suggested an alternative modality of delivering our analysis in R over the web via an API, and prepared a reasonable and accurate scope to complete that.

Throughout the process, communication was a breeze, and Mason always responded when called upon. Mason followed through with all items in the scope, made modifications when requested, and went above and beyond to help us transition the application to our AWS account. We will continue to rely on Modern Research Consulting as we move forward with our business.


Interactive Graphical Analysis

Behavioral Research and Teaching at the University of Oregon developed a web-based interactive graphics platform for school administrators to track the performance and progress of students in grades K-8.  We contracted with Mason to complete the work so the graphs were professional in appearance and efficient in navigation. From the very beginning, he was clear and organized as well as responsive.

His bid was specific and his follow through was complete, accurate and timely. In moving through two iterations, he not only completed the work in the original bid but also was helpful in suggesting new options and features we had not previously considered.


Shiny Development Consulting

Original testimonial in German:

Die Lot Internet GmbH extrahiert umfangreiche Datenbestände aus dem Internet und erzeugt auf dieser Basis Reports für Kunden u.a. zur Wettbewerbsbeobachtung.

Für den Selfservice-Ansatz, wo wir den kleineren Kunden es ermöglichen wollen, diese Reports selbst zu erstellen, entwickelten wir mit der Unterstützung von Mason ein Internet-Portal für die Einbettung der mit Shiny / R entwickelten dynamischen Dashboard.

Mason überzeugte uns dabei durch seine exzellenten Fachkenntnisse, seine überragende Berater-Kompetenz und seine schnelle Umsetzungszeit. Auch schwierige Aufgabenstellungen konnte Mason in kürzester Zeit souverän lösen.

Wir sind sehr froh, mit Mason einen so kompetenten Shiny / R Berater gefunden zu haben. Ohne ihn hätten wir mit diesem Projekt keinen so schnellen Erfolg.

Translated from German to English:

Lot Internet GmbH extracts extensive data from the Internet and generates reports for customers for competition monitoring.

For a self-service approach, where we want to enable smaller customers to create these reports themselves, we developed an Internet portal with the support of Mason to embed the dynamic dashboard developed with Shiny / R.

Mason convinced us through his excellent professional knowledge, outstanding consultant skills and fast implementation time. Mason was able to resolve difficult tasks in a very short time.

We are very glad to have found with Mason such a competent Shiny / R consultant. Without him, we would not have achieved such a rapid success with this project.

 


Dynamic Graphical Data Exploration Shiny Application

We were under a tight deadline, and Mason was outstanding in providing timely support and quick responsiveness.

Not only did we meet the deadline, but the work he provided was fantastic.


Time Series Modeling/Forecasting Shiny Application

I contacted Mason to help me with a problem I could not solve by myself for R. Mason immediately understood my problem from a programming and business perspective.

He produced a result for me that was exactly what I wanted, and even added a few features I hadn’t even though of. It was done in an extremely efficient manner, and the cost was fantastic for such a useful piece of software.

I highly recommend Mason for his professionalism and service.


Social Media Dashboard Shiny Application

Mason created a social media data visualization and analytics application using R, Shiny, and other web technologies. He helped me improve upon my initial idea, translated my vision into an easily comprehensible scope of work, and then delivered the software in a timely and cost-effective manner.

Mason also communicates extremely clearly and effectively so that project management is a breeze when working with him. I can’t wait to work with Mason on future development projects.


Energy Prediction Shiny Application

Mason worked carefully and skillfully to produce a functional interactive tool that enables users to annotate time-ordered charts of actual and predicted energy use.

He developed automatic data exchanges with different data sources to drive the application, accessing daily energy use records and weather data…using Amazon Web Services to set up and host the application.

Mason created a plausible budget giving me estimates that were reasonable and accurate. He has been easy to work with and responsive. I recommend him without reservation.


Course Review: Build Web Apps in R with Shiny

After this course, I feel much more confident building my own apps. Additionally, the portions of the course on how to put your apps on a server were spot on!

Mason is a knowledgeable and involved instructorwho has helped me navigate the sometimes-daunting labyrinth that is R and Shiny.
