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, or your colleagues and collaborators, in an engaging, intuitive way, without worrying about how readable or accessible your published paper is, making a web page is what you need. A web page is immediately sharable. Interactivity is standard on the web, which allows users to explore your whole data and research on their own without having to piece it together from a paper. And the tools for making all this happen have matured over the past decade to the point that it is now within the reach of every researcher to make beautiful, interactive and online graphics and web apps. In this workshop, you’ll learn the fundamentals of making web pages with HTML and CSS. Then you’ll learn the programming language of the web, Javascript, and how to use it and its libraries make web pages that are interactive and filled with beautiful data visualisations.
