Using D3 To Show Public Knowledge In Times of Crisis – D3.js November 2015

Earlier this week, we held our last D3.js meetup of the year. We were pleased to have Fiona Pigott, Data Scientist at Twitter, present a data visualization illustrating how often Ebola was discussed online at the height of public panic surrounding the disease. In the visualization, she also covered the use of transitions, and left our group with a lot to use in our collaborative workshop!

Here is Fiona’s GitHub so that you can clone the repo. We’ve also included one of her tweets from the evening, providing other links for online coding.

We hope to have our video of the workshop up next week for you to follow along with the group and their workshopping process!

We’ll be starting our D3 meetup back up in January, and we’d love to have you! Join our LinkedIn group or follow us on Twitter to be notified of upcoming events. If you’d like to speak or present at one of our events–remember, you don’t have to be an expert, you just have to be willing to show what you’re working on!–email Danielle at See you in 2016!
