WE’RE HERE TO HELPAs you move up the learning curve, you’re likely to have questionsaround many of the concepts covered in class. We’re here to help-through in-person and virtual office hours, as well as a dedicated#slack channel where you can get assistance from instructors,support staff and your fellow students. All work is done via Github, soyou can create issues directly on your own projects for instructors toassist you in a truly asynchronous fashion. In addition to learning tocode, you will have access to a set of career services that will help youprepare for technical roles after graduation.Career ServicesPanel Speaker EventAccess to Prospective EmployersCareer CoachingCareer Content and Practice SessionsHigh Impact Career EventsProjects Supported by IndustrySoft Skills TrainingCustomizable Tools and Templates UC San Diego Extension - In partnership with Trilogy Education Services7

BUILDING YOUR PORTFOLIOIt’s a fact: companies care about what you can do, not what you say you can do. For thatreason, our curriculum teaches you how to put what you’ve learned to work on real-world dataprojects, ranging from visualizing bike sharing data in New York City to mapping worldwideearthquakes in real-time. UC San Diego Extension - In partnership with Trilogy Education Services8

BUILDING YOUR PORTFOLIOBank DesertsSocial economists have long noted a trend that in geographic areas with higher poverty rates, there is often a dearth of reputable banks or financialservices. The shortage leads to higher rates of financial victimization in these areas. But how could we show this trend using data? In this activity,you’ll learn how to combine data from the US Census, Google Maps, and Google Places to visualize the relationship between various socioeconomicfactors and the number of banks in a given zip code.Skills NeededObjectives Python Matplotlib Pandas APIs Google Maps Google Places Utilize the Python Requests library to make hundreds of API calls to the US Censusand Google Maps datasets Utilize the Python pandas library to organize the retrieved information by zip codeand socioeconomic factors Build scatter plots to easily communicate the Banking Desert phenomenaEarthquake HistoryData isn’t just about finance and numbers. It can also be used for good as well. In this activity, you will create an interactive visualization of historicearthquakes over time using Leaflet.js, a popular JavaScript geo-mapping library. Your final application will provide a near-live feed of globalearthquakes and their relative magnitudes.Skills Needed ObjectivesHTML Leaflet.js CSS APIs Javascript JSON Harness the power of APIs and JSON to gather earthquake data fromUSGS datasets Utilize Leaflet.js library to create visually compelling, animated maps Embed the created map onto a live web page using HTML and CSSWeb Scraping ApplicationSometimes, data is just out of reach. Whether it’s a social media website that is guarding it’s information, a government agency that has poorlyorganized records, or a cookbook website filled with secret recipes -- data isn’t always accessible by external applications. This is where data scrapingcomes in. Utilizing Python libraries like Beautiful Soup, you will learn to convert data straight from raw HTML into a queryable and storable form,opening up troves of data for your future applications.Skills NeededObjectives Python CSS Scrape your favorite social media website for otherwise inaccessible data Beautiful Soup MongoDB Parse through the retrieved information and store it into a HTMLMongoDB database Create new representations of the data using HTML and CSS UC San Diego Extension - In partnership with Trilogy Education Services9
