Fighting COVID-19 w/ APIs and Big Data


Fighting COVID-19 with APIs and Big Data hosted by Bit Project:

Bit Project would like to invite students from University of Southern California to participate in our webinar about applying the power of APIs and Big Data to combat COVID-19. Utilizing data provided by Johns Hopkins University, we will be guiding students through Postman to exhibit how code can influence issues faced at a global scale. In addition, we have speakers from reputable organizations, such as Microsoft and Postman, that will explain the role of distinct computing features in the age of COVID-19.


By the end of the webinar, attendees will have experience with:

  1. Finding and accessing public APIs
  2. Importing, cleaning, and processing geospatial data
  3. Using Jupyter Notebook
  4. Using Facebook’s Prophet Library to forecast the spread of the disease.

While this webinar is centered around APIs and Big Data, we will also have speaker(s) from the front-lines of COVID-19 to conceptually understand the potential magnitude technologists may have on this pandemic.

We will be hosting the webinar on Thursday, May 21st at 6:00 p.m.
