(801) Your interactive toolkit

A session at Mozilla Festival 2012

Saturday 10th November, 2012

2:00pm to 3:00pm (GMT)

This Learning Lab is a practical introduction to the tools and libraries used to build standards-based interactive content at guardian.co.uk and other newsrooms around the world.

Starting with an idea participants will be walked though conceptual development, wire-framing & evaluating technical feasibility before an introduction to libraries we commonly use to assemble content such as leaflet.js, modestmaps.js, d3.js, raphael.js, underscore, kartograph and miso.

Trainers: Alastair Dant, Alex Graul, Gregor Aisch, Rich Harris
