Once again, in the CESIRE headquarters, Thursday 15th of February de 2018, the teachers of the Barcelona Dades Obertes Challenge have attended the last workshop of the challenge. In this case, it was about making infographics: concepts, basic programs and its application with real cases. This topics have been widely explained by the professor Jordi Català, referent and pioneer in this type of multidisciplinary activities that, through analysis and reflection, translate and explicit any information in images, even the more complex.
The teachers have achieved throughout the 3 formative sessions the necessary knowledge and abilities to be able to work with open data. Now is time to transfer that knowledge and abilities to the alumni and apply them to the projects.
From here, we want to thank their efforts, dedication and interest and wish them all good work and lots of luck!
