Migrahack Training Day at California State University, Northridge

Workshop at Migrahack Training Day at California State University, NorthridgeMay 2014

I led a workshop titled ‘Intro to Data Viz.’ The training introduced journalism students and professors to online and open-sourced tools to produce and build data visualizations. This included presenting how data is stored and used in these tools, as a .csv or .json file. The workshop also taught basic coding to understand how to embed a project, and change some styling.

The tools in the workshop included Infogram, Google Maps, Fusion Tables, Timeline JS, StoryMap JS, and Leaflet. For Leaflet, which was the most advanced tool in the workshop, I focused on how they can use a text editor (Sublime) and how they can use inspect element in Google Chrome to understand the structure of an interactive project.
