By the end of the workshop, you'll know the answers to the following:

Data Visualization

Our Data Visualization workshop is the perfect workshop to learn how to manage collected data and make it look fantastic.

Learn More

In a world where there is more data than most of us really know what to do with, how do we go about displaying facts outside of a boring pie chart or common graph? Ever hear of the term "data visualization"? Data visualization not only helps us to compare and contrast information, but it also helps us understand common patterns, perceive certain outcomes, and aid in future decisions. Whether you’re a part of a marketing team, or just someone who needs a good infographic for a blog post, we’ll teach you how to manage collected data, and how to make it look fantastic.

In this workshop, we’ll use processing - an open source language that builds upon the Java language to 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. We’ll go over how to code simple mathematical equations and change variables, integers, colours and shapes to create unique and engaging outcomes.

During the session, we’ll cover the following:

  • - 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 a variable is, an integer and a float, and how these can be slightly changed to make a simple shape look more interesting and complex
  • - How to integrate basic user interaction in order to navigate around your data (and be able to see some cool animations!)
  • - Coding in RGB colour, and the importance of colour in data visualizations

This workshop is designed for absolute beginners. If you’ve never used Processing before, or don’t know the first thing about creative coding or data visualization, you’ve come to the right place!
