Class on data visualization; main technology used is D3.js. The class is also cross-listed as INFO 3300.
- JSON data structure and manipulation
- Mathematical data visualization and interpretation
Several (6-8) programming assignments that generally don’t take more than a few (3-4) hours. Some of them can be completed in as little as 30 minutes - Spring 2015 & 2016. Two group projects with randomized groups of 3.
Talk to TAs if you need help, search for online tutorials and guides with D3.js.
Class has very interesting potential, but in lecture he seems to cater towards the lowest common denominator. As such, the lecture can move quite slowly because Prof. Mimno insisted on asking questions to the audience and waiting for responses every time.
Took class Spring 2016, great professor but a little heavy on in-class participation. Wasn’t hard class as long as you didn’t procrastinate on assignments or goof off. Had lots of interesting lectures and topics, many of them concerning current events so as to keep things lively and engaging.
