Fighting COVID19 with APIs and Big Data

2020-05-21
Online
Learn how to leverage the power of APIs to access and process large amounts of data for your next big project!

During the webinar, we will go over how to

  • Find and Access Public APIs
  • Import, Clean, and Process Geospatial Data
  • Use Jupyter Notebook
  • Use Facebook’s Prophet Library to Forecast the Spread of the Disease

No Experience is Required. Across the globe, technologists are curating innovative strategies to combat the pandemic. From data visualization to app-centric health sensors to autonomous vehicles, technologists are coming together to prevent the spread of disease from remote locations or within their communities. We welcome technologists from all different backgrounds to join us as we discuss the impact code can make to a global pandemic like COVID-19.

Technologists possess the means to make an impact on issues to scale that are present due to the pandemic. As a result of the webinar, attendees will be able to utilize what they learn to ease the impact of COVID-19 on social issues, such as testing and incident rates, in their communities via the visualization of data provided by Johns Hopkins University.
