During this time, the Le Wagon China team took our offline workshops, online.
Leveraging WeChat groups and local streaming services like Qianliao (千聊), we were able to teach hundreds of online learners the basics of Data Science, Web Development, and the benefits of learning how to code.
By far one of our most successful workshops was when we taught students how to build a WeChat Mini Program that tracked the spread of the coronavirus.
We called it, the COVID-19 Data Tracker. 🦠
Students from across the country followed along as we connected a boilerplate WeChat Mini Program to a live API. Many succeeded in connecting the pieces, others customized the design of their application, a few even improved on the data's visualization.
Now we're giving learners from across the world the ability to join along. We recorded this live workshop and published it on YouTube.
To get started, you'll need a Windows or Mac computer. Open up our walkthrough, play the video, and good luck.
