An introduction to programming and web visualisation LIMITED

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity seats available

*Please note Chris McDowall's Gentle Introduction to Programming and Heritage Data workshop has been cancelled. This workshop, kindly hosted by one of our keynotes, replaces that workshop and differs in content.

This half-day workshop is an introduction to accessing and visualising StatisticsNZ data.

You will learn how to:

Analyse and explore the data set in R

Create a simple web application to visualise the data set

A deep introduction to d3.js 

Combine d3 with react.js

These examples will focus on using R and JavaScript. 

All the code will be made available to participants during and following the workshop. The focus of this workshop is to offer a deep introduction to doing visualisation in the browser and show how to manage complexity, from creative art to dashboards. 

This is not a hands-on programming workshop. It will focus on showing the process and introducing libraries what you can use to visualise. There’ll be explanations and commentary along the way, but not nearly as droll as Chris McDowall’s would have been.

 Who is this for?

 Anyone wants to understand how visualisations are developed and how data analysis connects with the final product. New programmers looking for a bridge between "Hello, World!" tutorials and applied development.

Intermediate developers looking to pick up an understanding of d3, or React.
