This workshop was delivered virtually to students participating in the York University DITA hackathon. It aimed to familiarize students with Node-RED, its nodes, and its flow-based programming model.

Students built a realtime earthquake tracking dashboard and the web service that powers it, all in Node-Red. The earthquake data was retrieved from the USGS earthquake API, and combined with weather data to map the active earthquake zones and plot the frequency of earthquakes over time.
