First Observable notebook: Prototyping with polish *pre-registered attendees only

  • Event: 2020 NICAR Conference
  • Speaker: TBA
  • Date/Time: Thursday, Mar. 5 at 2:15pm
  • Location: Studio 3 - 2nd floor
  • Audio file: No audio file available.

Skill level: Advanced

Alex Garcia, Iris Lee, Ben Welsh and Aaron Williams teach you how to rapidly prototype a complex data visualization with JavaScript, D3.js and an interactive Observable notebook.

This three-hour, hands-on course will show you how journalists are putting Observable’s powerful potential to work. Using nothing but your web browser, you will sketch, refine and publish an interactive graphic like one that appeared in The New York Times. Along the way, you’ll see how Observable’s groundbreaking approach to coding can help you be more creative, ambitious and efficient.

Preregistration is required and seating is limited. Laptops will be provided. 

Workshop prerequisites: If you’ve used JavaScript once or twice, have a good attitude and know how to take a few code crashes in stride, you are qualified for this class. If you’re suspicious and think we might be Internet hipsters, we welcome the challenge of winning you over. This stuff is cool.
