We appreciate your interest in our workshop. This time we only opened 12 places, but do not worry, we'll do more next year! We ask you to answer  this survey  in order to improve our future workshops, and thus design and offer you one that matches your profile :)

Thank you very much!

They say that information is power, but sometimes we have such a large amount of data that we do not know how to process it and analyze it.

Do you want to extract, understand and communicate the most important information contained in your data, and thus make more informed decisions in your studies or work?

Would you like to learn the basics about Data Visualization and put them into practice immediately by applying them in your areas of interest?

Then this workshop is for you!

During this session we will present the main processes and tools for Data Visualization in an easy and fast way, without having to have previous knowledge in programming. You will learn by doing, in a friendly and welcoming environment, and interacting with your peers (maximum 12 people).

You will work with your laptop (so remember to bring yours!) To familiarize yourself with the tools and techniques necessary for Data Visualization, and you will work with others to learn how to communicate your data in the best way.

At the end of the workshop, you will be able to:

Generate research questions and understand your audience, clients, etc.

Familiarize yourself with the principles and methods of "Data Cleaning".

Describe the different types of data that exist, and how they determine the type of Data Visualization that can be created based on them.

Identify the best types of Data Visualization according to the different Visualization objectives.

Create your own Data Visualization that tells a story.

Use the following tools: Open Refine, RawGraphs, D3 Plus and Github for the exploration and visualization of data.

Tools that we will use

Our goal is to use accessible, open and free tools where possible. During this workshop we will use the following:

Open Refine , RawGraphs , D3 Plus and Github .
