COVID-19 Events

 “There is no end to education. It is not that you read a book, pass an examination, and finish with education. The whole of life, from the moment you are born to the moment you die, is a process of learning.” – Jiddu Krishnamurti

By February 2020, government agencies, public health agencies, medical institutions, private/public companies, and independent web developers began to build dashboards for their organization to track a contagious disease spreading in Wuhan China, now known as severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). Colloquially known as simply the coronavirus. Similarly, I was eager to learn how to build a dashboard. With a simple Google search, “how to build a coronavirus map,” I was led to numerous web-pages that provided tutorials on employing languages like Python and Kava to build real-time dashboards. I turned to Coursera, edX, Educative, and various massive open online course providers to learn the pogromming skills necessary for build this site and a dashboard. With my new programming skills, I began to incorporate Java into a software application, called ArcGIS and began scripting commands-based data types to make up geographical points and data. I used domain-specific languages such as JavaScript, R, SQL, HTML, CSS, to sort through large sets of data, build the front-end and back-end development for my dashboard and website.
 

This page is a series of online webinars, dedicated to teaching you how to create your own COVID-19 dashboard. Some lectures will require no prior programming experience, while other will require you to create a free ArcGIS Pro 2.5 account and have intermediate to advanced knowledge in certain programming languages.

All of these lectures will be free. All you have to do is RSVP. I hope you find these lectures useful and if you have any questions, feel free to send me an email at coronavirus.site@gmail.com
