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.
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 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!
