We have two presentations that will help you get data driven!
Shirley Wu (Engineer @ illumio) will give an interactive introduction to d3. Shirley has built a page that lets you play with the fundamental concepts of d3: http://sxywu.github.io/d3intro/
to understand the enter-update-exit pattern in a nice step-by-step manner. In her talk she will walk us through the page and help us understand this core concept.
Daniel Mané (Engineer @ Palantir) will introduce Plottable, a library of modular chart components built on D3 that is being developed at Palantir. He will explain why Palantir decided to make another charting library, explain Plottable's architecture, and its highly generalized APIs for expressing visualizations. He will also demonstrate tips and tricks that Palantir uses to create highly performant D3 charts with continuous real-time interaction and large data scales.
Refreshments will be provided thanks to our host Model N.
