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.
