1. What you will make¶
As part of this class, you’ll gain a basic understanding of how graphics, design and data teams across the journalism industry build pages that require customized computer programming.
The tutorial will demonstrate how to:
Use a command-line interface to issue commands
Version and share your code with git and GitHub
Publish a microsite on the Internet with GitHub’s Pages
By the end of this lesson, you will publish a standalone page with a series of graphics examining the high homicide rate in Harvard Park, a small neighborhood in South Los Angeles.
You will create the page by repurposing data from a 2017 Los Angeles Times story by Nicole Santa Cruz and Cindy Chang.
A working example of what you will make can be found at palewire.github.io/first-visual-story/
