algorithm visualization I

  • June 27, 2014 · 5:00 PM

I want to try something different for this. Please read the description carefully or it wont work.

I want to have a meetup for advanced users to get together and hack in a comfortable environment. Recently Mike Bostock gave a talk about visualizing algorithms, and you can see some examples on his blocks page: http://bl.ocks.org/mbostock

you can see similar work by Setosa: http://setosa.io/

I hope that gathering advanced d3 users who want to hack on an algorithm visualizations will be fun, as well as a way to push ourselves to deeply understand something we may have just learned to get by.

If you want to attend, please email Ian at [masked] with the algorithm you want to visualize and a link to your d3 work (blocks page, portfolio etc) and I'll let you know where we are meeting.

We will continue to host many beginner meetups and workshops, but we would like to try out some advanced sessions as well.

    Why isn't the meetup location shown, that is important for me to even consider making somewhere at 5pm, other things come later.

    Seems strange not to give the location of the Meetup for something called "Bay Area"... that's a pretty broad area, and the time and location very much dictates my interest when it comes to meetups.

      Yeah, I read them. Thought it was strange, and I was offering feedback. Wasn't expecting such a strange response. Anyhow, if you'd ever like to host an event at Netflix, let me know. My team does a lot of d3 work there.

      alright, sorry for the snark. we are trying this strange format because its a different type of event. whenever we deviate from the standard meetup format we get a lot of questions that can be answered by reading. thanks, would love to do an event at netflix!

    Mike posted a transcription of his talk: http://bost.ocks.org/mike/algorithms/

    we've filled up this meetup, but I'm sure we'll do another one!

    Hi all, we have filled up our space and can no longer accept more attendees. I will encourage participants to post what they come up with and if all goes well we will do it again!

    don't forget to read the description y'all. the location WILL NOT be posted here, email me with the algorithm youd like to visualize and a link to your d3 work for more info.

    I have been working on visualizing corporate workflows. They are usually pretty boring, but can they be made fun or at least interesting, I wonder. They are not algorithms though...

    Would you like OpenDNS to host? I can check for availability on our side. We can support a large crowd.

      thanks for the offer Andrew. We have space and we expect this to be a very small crowd. We do have some events in the works that could use a big space if you dont mind sending me an email!

    That talk was amazing (thought I saw you guys at Eyeo). I'd love to come to this and hack at some graph traversal algorithms, but there no way I can get there at 5pm on a Friday. Next time!

      yeah its a casual time. we should be hacking for a while tho so if you still want to try shoot me an email. otherwise we'll hold another one soon!
