Event description

Description

Your trainer for this workshop is Errol Lloyd, Research Community Coordinator from Research Platforms Services, The University of Melbourne. Bring your own Laptop.

This workshop is being held across two days on Monday the 27th of March 9am-5pm and Tuesday 28th of March 9am-5pm.

About this Event:

Making a website and putting it on the web is now pretty easy. More recently, making beautiful, interactive and dynamic data visualisations has been brought well within the researcher’s grasp thanks to the Javascript libraries D3 and Plotly. Having a presence on the internet is more important for researchers now than ever before. If you have data, a research story to tell and you want to share it with the world without worrying about where your journal paper ends up and how readable/boring it is, making a wonderful web page is what you need. In this workshop, you’ll learn how to use HTML, CSS and javascript to make web pages, and how to fill them with beautiful data visualisations. All you'll need is your laptop and your trusty text editor.

A little bit about us......

We are researchers, training researchers! We get you! and would like to embrace you into our Community. Please feel free to swing by our new space called "Co - Lab", located in Frank Tate, Room 101 ( opposite Tsubu) You are welcome anytime and we would love to see you there!

Research Platforms provides, builds and maintains ICT infrastructure for researchers, in particular cloud compute infrastructure and data storage infrastructure. Enabling data-driven research and the effective use of IT is at the centre of everything we do. We service more than 3,000 researchers from all disciplines across Parkville, within Victoria, and nationally.We work closely with key research support units including Faculty IT teams, the Melbourne eResearch Group, the Library, and other Infrastructure Services departments.

As well as providing underlying infrastructure services, we also work with researchers to provide a range of training, engagement and community building activities aimed at both maximising usage of the facilities, and maximising the value researchers get from them. By building community infrastructure in this way, we connect researchers with each other, with the supplied infrastructure, and with related infrastructure and services such as NCI, Pawsey, VLSCI, etc.
