Summer Thesis Research Table

2:00 pm - 3:00 pm Frost Library, Research Tables (1st floor)

The thesis research table is a regular meet-up for students who are starting work on a thesis (or other similar long-term research projects). Each week, we’ll start with reflective accountability check-ins and then focus our discussion on a particular aspect of the research and writing process. Drop in or attend regularly. We'll provide the donuts! Hosted by Frost Library and the Writing Center.

Students Only

Interactive Data Visualization on the Web

The World-Wide Web is a set of computer technologies that publish and display information over the Internet in a highly interactive manner. Snazzy, interactive visualizations of information produced by science or the digital humanities are all over the Web and easier to create than ever before. In this example-based course you’ll learn about:
• Enough Web plumbing (HTML, CSS, SVG) to write your own web pages
• A programming language to manipulate your web pages (JavaScript)
• A visualization library (D3) that will make your data sparkle.

This workshop is in four parts: Wednesdays, July 10, 17, 24, 31. Snacks and drinks will be provided!

Please register in advance.
