d3.js and the city

Come see how d3 is enabling new kinds of visualizations about our surroundings!

Shawn Allen of Stamen (http://stamen.com/studio/shawn) will show us how their cutting edge data visualization practice uses d3.js. 

Shawn Allen is a Stamen partner, designer, and programmer. As Interaction Director, he both facilitates communication between Stamen's design and technology teams and directs the design and implementation of interactive projects. He also teaches and consults journalists, policymakers, and the public sector on strategies for making information available to the public. 


We are excited to have members of the winning teams of the 2013 Urban Data Challenge tell us about how they used d3.js to build their projects! http://urbandatachallenge.org/

    Could this be streamed, or at least recorded, for the benefit of the 200+ people on the waiting list?

    September 15, 2013

    • Ian J.

      we will definitely be recording the meetup, and will be hosting a google hangout to stream it live as well.

    what is the attendance rate usually at these things? should i show up and hope for a lot of no shows?

    September 9, 2013

    • Ian J.

      we are checking people in at the door. people who don't show up will lose priority at the next event (we also have attendance records for the last event and will look for patterns).
      if there is room we will let you in. we will also ask people to update their RSVPs soon. don't give up hope!

      hooray. thanks ian!

    Since we don't have enough space in SF, if you'd prefer to attend an event in the South Bay or East Bay on the 16th, RSVP for your pick:

    East Bay
    http://www.meetup.com/Bay-Area-d3-User-Group/events/138252492/

    South Bay
    http://www.meetup.com/Bay-Area-d3-User-Group/events/138252222/

    We'll do all further organizing for these meetups on those event pages rather than this one.

    1 · September 3, 2013

  • Kai C.

    Stoney mentioned he could reserve a room at HackerDojo in Mountain View. Would anyone in South Bay like to meet there?

    Contact Stoney Vintson if you are interested! You all figure out what type of event you want to have, and we'll post the event to the group.

    September 1, 2013

    • Stoney V.

      due to the short notice, I will be able to reserve a conference room that can accomodate about 30 people. With more notice, I can reserve the large event room which can accomodate about 98 people.

      September 1, 2013

    • Kai C.

      30 people will work. Can you spend part of the event seeing if anyone would volunteer to organize further South Bay meetups?

      September 2, 2013

  • Ken P.

    You might try Chegg, they have a big venue; they had Steve Sounders there week before last. Chegg.com they're in Sunnyvale.

    August 31, 2013

  • Kai C.

    Does anyone have space in East Bay to do a joint meetup the same night or later this month?

    This group is getting too big for San Francisco.

    2 · August 30, 2013

    • Anca

      Are you thinking about streaming the meetup from SF and showing it in other locations? We can host about 40 people at Tech Liminal in Downton Oakland, but not hundreds. :)

      August 31, 2013

    • Stoney V.

      I can reserve a large room at the HackerDojo 599 Fairchild Dr. Mountain View, Ca I know that this can be difficult destination for people who live in the east bay or San Francisco. So, I would recommend using this as an alternative or alternating sites. I am also able to record the event and possibly stream it depending upon the outbound bandwidth.

    Too late... Man, this filled up fast!
