This 2-hour workshop will focus on empowering civic minded developers and data scientists to leverage a wealth of open data through data visualization to inform public opinion. You will get hands on experience with D3.js and Javascript to explore and visualize city of SF open data to tell a compelling civic narrative. After all, you best insight is only as good as your ability to share it.This will be a hands-on beginner tutorial teaching D3.js. Basic Javascript and programming experience is required, but no D3.js experience is assumed. The more background you have coming in, the more you will get out of the workshop.
