API Of You: Final Project

April 26, 2018 API of You

For my final project, I decided to continue working on my midterm. I found the work that the Committee to Protect Journalists does to be both meaningful, and important, even if it wasn’t always easy to research.

I knew that I wanted to somehow make the women more than just points of data in this iteration of the project. While I still included the same statistics that were in the midterm, I added a timeline using timeline js, that I hope reminds us that the data represents women who who’s lives were cut short much too soon. In 2017, there were 8 female journalists killed, while there’s only one death thus far in 2018.

Adding the data to the timeline took a couple of tries, but once I figured out correctly add input to the spreadsheet, it went rather quickly.

Overall, I’m happy with my progress in learning how to use node and javascript for server side applications, even if I’d like to get a little more experience doing small projects. My updated project can be found here.
