Lab 4

In lab today we primarily did design critiques on midterm projects. We also looked at the process for examining a months worth of Seattle Public Library data at a time. By using a PHP script to aggregate the SPL data, we can examine a month of data all at once, or close to one million checkouts. I showed an example of how to set this up in Processing, and explained what the procedure for calling the PHP script was. Below are links to some of the files we discussed.
