How I Created an Interactive, Scrolling Visualisation with D3.js, and how you can too

  • With the dataset decided, I started exploring the data using Python and Pandas in Jupyter notebooks, looking for any interesting trends or points I would want to emphasise in a visualisation.
  • The bubbles would then change form and colour based on the type of data I was trying to highlight (ie gender discrepancies, median salary, category grouping etc.).
  • I would strongly suggest that you take a deep dive into your data before starting any of the visualisation process, because you want to have some semblance of the interactions you have in mind before actually sitting down to code the final product.
  • In this article, I will focus on the elements which I found confusing, and put a greater emphasis on the part of actually creating the visualisation).
  • This involves creating all the scales, axes, shapes, for simulations and other elements which you will need in the visualisation.

Whistleblower: US workers treated coronavirus without gear, training - Business Insider

  • A whistleblower from the Department of Health and Human Services has alleged that the US sent more than a dozen government workers to assist Americans who were evacuated from Wuhan, China without giving them proper training or protective gear, The Washington Post and The New York Times reported on Thursday.
  • The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced on Wednesday that the public needed to brace itself as the COVID-19 virus, known as the novel coronavirus, sweeps the globe and is increasingly likely to spread within the US — a possibility that would most likely force changes to daily life for many Americans.
  • Health experts told Insider that public trust and cooperation by local, state, and federal officials were essential to treating those infected with the virus and limiting its spread.

New US coronavirus case from area with quarantined evacuees from cruise, Wuhan

  • Notably, Solano county is home to the Travis Air Force Base, where hundreds of repatriated US citizens have been under federal quarantine after being evacuated from China and the luxury cruise liner, the Diamond Princess, which suffered a massive outbreak of the coronavirus earlier this month.
  • The Washington Post reports that according to unnamed sources, the patient is a woman who was originally treated at NorthBay VacaValley Hospital in Solano for flu-like symptoms beginning on February 15.
  • Kris Concepcion, fire chief and acting public information officer in Vacaville, California—which is in Solano county—told the Post that Solano officials had issued a directive not to transport any new patients to two hospitals in the county, the NorthBay VacaValley Hospital (where the woman was reportedly treated) and NorthBay Medical Center in nearby Fairfield.

Vice President Pence bulks up Coronavirus Task Force with medical and economic experts

  • From her position within the State Department as the U.S. Global AIDS Coordinator and Special Representative for Global Health Policy, Birx coordinated the Army, Navy and Air Force in their HIV/AIDS efforts and led the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Division of Global HIV/AIDS program.
  • In addition to Birx, the vice president also appointed to the task force Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, Director of the National Economic Council Larry Kudlow and Surgeon General Dr. Jerome Adams.
  • Stock markets have declined significantly over the past week as economists and investors weigh the prospects of much slower growth in 2020 as a result of the global spread of coronavirus.
  • Tech companies like Microsoft have already issued warnings over the effect coronavirus will have on earnings, and large technology events, including (most recently) Facebook’s developer conference and the Mobile World Congress (which was slated to begin this week) have been cancelled.

Five Tips For Coding Interviews

  • Whether you're frontend or backend, knowing these tips, and practicing them before your interview, will ensure you put your best foot forward and hopefully land a job offer!
  • Thus it's important to think through all of the key information you'll need to solve the problem, and ask if something is unclear.
  • If you simply BS the answer and pretend you know what you're talking about, this indicates that you're not a truthful person and you likely won't receive a job offer.
  • Additionally if you ever receive a coding challenge question that you've seen the solution for or have already gotten in a past interview, be honest about it.
  • For example if you're asked to write an algorithm which determines whether there is a loop (or a broken edge) in a binary tree, think about the possible use cases.

How top CS students problem solve

  • A student who got second place in the Pac-man contest ultimately ran a brute force bash script overnight to create a feedback loop over the random seeds and upload new solutions to the test case we were trying (poorly) to keep hidden.
  • The brute force solution is all about building a better toolkit, but ultimately the student lost to a clever solution that is from one stroke of genius.
  • The top scorer in a class of 900 students was the one that made a change to the problem setting that made their score so much higher (10% margin).
  • You can have a great career through consistency and enjoyment, but it’s fun to see how some of the best minds break problems down.
  • I’m not sure if it’s just a change of perspective, but I have been impressed by the students.
