This month, we'll learn to build snowflakes using Javascript library D3 and Observable. Observable is a notebook for analysing data and creating interactive projects built by D3 creator Mike Bostock.

We'll be following a tutorial written by our very own Ændrew Rininsland while feasting on festive mince pies! 🥧

Bring a laptop along as this is a practical, hands-on workshop. No programming experience is required.

Please make sure you're signed up to Dropbox to view our shared doc ( — and add links to anything data or journalism-related you've seen or worked on to the show and tell section!
