Where & When

Advanced Manufacturing and Design Centre - Room 206. Wednesday 15th July from 1:30 - 3pm.

General coding and project work

There is no tutorial or formal discussion scheduled for this session. Feel free to use this time to catch up on previous SHW sessions, work on your own projects, or brush up your coding skills. We recommend Codecademy, Khan Academy and Coursera to begin with. Examples of projects created by SHW participants can be found here. We generally work to music… (BBC 6 Music)

Interactive Visualisations of Research Plots

For those who want to want to practise javascript and html, I’ll be using D3js to create some interacting figures of research plots. I’m following the examples from Sudeep Das’s datamusing blog. Sudeep is a data scientist at @OpenTable and a former astrophysicist.

Although the visualisations won’t go into the actual paper, I know they’ll be useful to have and in this format I’ll be sharing with collaborators via a simple GitHub webpage.
