Administrating Data

Content Managment Systems, Data Visualization And The General Behaviour Of Information In The Web

This course is dedicated to all design- and media-students who are interested in frontend-development of websites and applications and have first experience in HTML, CSS, JS, PHP.

"Administrating Data" explores solutions for the in- and output, storing and visualizing data.

We are going to take hands on a couple of Content Management Systems, grabbing some external data from social media channels (API of Facebook, Google, Twitter...), creating self-made CMS solutions and handling bigger data (not "The Big Data"!) with some visualization techniques.
