Ladies Learning Code – Data visualization for Beginners: An Introduction to Creative Coding with Processing

What will you learn at this workshop:

  • It will take a look at large amounts of data – more specifically, hashtags from Twitter and campaign reports from Mailchimp – and use Processing to create beautiful and easy-to-understand visualizations based on our findings.
  • A  review on how to code simple mathematical equations and change variables, integers, colours and shapes to create unique and engaging outcomes.
  • How to publish your live and interactive creation to the web, and how to go about collecting your own sets of data outside of the workshop.
  • An overview of Processing, why it’s cool, and how you can use it in the workplace
  • How to import a .csv file containing large amounts of data into Processing
  • How to grab data from the .csv file and visually display it using geometrical shapes
  • What a variable is, an integer and a float, and how these can be slightly changed to make a simple shape look more interesting
