model driven d3.js

We will look at two model-driven approaches for creating large scale web applications purposed for data visualization and interaction.

Josh Lewis (PhD, Frontend Engineer @ Ayasdi) will give an overview of Ayasdi's web application infrastructure, which leverages Backbone and D3 to create visualization components that can be replicated across multiple applications.

Curran Kelleher (finishing his PhD at the University of Massachusettes), will present an alternative approach using his own Model.js library. Model.js improves upon some shortcomings in Backbone by allowing users to react to specific sequences of model changes.

For those who can make it, craft beer and pizza will be available.

      This is beautiful! I would welcome this as a contribution to model-contrib, a new project for pooling model.js examples and modules http://curran.github....­

      Thanks! It's hard to say no to this compliment and offer. Who here is interested also?

    I enjoyed both talks. I am currently using Kelleher's model.js. It works great for my needs. I would like to try out backbone.js, but would like to do so in a way that avoids spaghetti code. I wish there was more structure and delineation in backbone.js.

      Yeah, I would love to come...I just don't know if I can.

      Same here, but my friend drafted me into a long bike ride and then I spend time with my bundles of joy .

    thanks again for the amazing speakers and the brave folks that gave demos :)

    Great talk. I really enjoyed how it went much deeper than visualizing data and covered management of visual components.

    Great event. Presentations are great. Can the presentations be shared?

    Ayasdi is doing some very elegant things with backbone & d3. Has me thinking how I can do the same in my own code...

      Curran, this is awesome! I'm going to try taking your work and modifying it for our intro to d3 on Thu in Sac!

    same question as sebastian.

    Any chance this is going to be recorded? I updated my RSVP to free up a spot since I can't make it.

    Hey everyone,

    Is the 100 person limit flexible? I'm on the waitlist and would love to be able to attend.

    Does anyone have experience getting serial data from arduino into d3? I'm stumped! If so, Any chance you are motivated by beer/free arduinos? Thanks!

      Check out Johnny-five, it is a node wrapper for firmata that makes sensor data from the arduino into node super easy (and from there Sockets!) There is a nodeschool class on it too. http://nodeschool.io/...­ You should come to nodebotday and I'd be more than happy to help hack!

    This may be of interest https://github.com/gmaclennan/d3-vertebrae - backbone-style models and events implemented in d3. I've been building a couple of web apps in d3, and this attempts to extract some of the core code. Models are implemented as sub-classed arrays, which can be fed directly to selection.data(). I would love to hear opinions on this approach and whether continuing work on this would be useful / interesting.

    we will be doing the usual 2 minute show-and-tell. please leave a comment with a link/description of what you want to show!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
