Week 1 Assignment PC

  1. Read Chapters 1–2 which introduces data visualization on the web and the d3 library.
  2. Starting with Chapter 3, Page 17, if you are not familiar with using HTML, CSS, and the console, please read this chapter and note the key concepts. By the end of this chapter you should know the basics of HTML, Classes, IDs, CSS, using Developer Tools in the browser, what javascript looks like, and what an SVG is. It is a lot, but we will be reviewing all this content in class throughout the semester.
  3. Use Chapter 4 as a reference for the steps we took in class to setup our files and local server. The instructions in the book will differ a little from class and below because we are using a different code base, but the same idea and steps of organizing your folder and starting the server applies. We will be using the terminal with Python. By now you may have a vague memory of the steps below as I have demonstrated them in class.
    note: if you are experienced in this sort of thing and do not need to read the lengthy detailed steps below. Simply download the class repo, start a local server, navigate to chapter 4’s mazeToTree.html in your browser. Take a screenshot of that entire window with url visible and submit the image as week1_yourlastname_yourfirstname.png to Canvas.
