d3 goes mobile

  • August 9, 2012 · 6:30 PM

Join the Bay Area d3 user group and the Bay Area Data Visualization group for an evening of data driven mobility. This will be a technical night, with talks and tutorials on going mobile with d3.js

We will warm up with some short tutorials on using built in d3 components and touch events from some of the d3.js group organizers.

The highlight of the night will be Rachel Binx from Stamen,
who will bless us with wisdom she acquired while making a big d3 data visualization project iphone/ipad ready:

Twitter will be opening up their new space for us to talk shop and are graciously sponsoring the snacks!

The talks will start at 7pm sharp, we are looking forward to learning a lot and seeing you there!

    I've scheduled a co-working session Tuesday afternoon if you're interested in getting your feet wet with mobile visualization:

    This meetup was actually too short (which I'm not sure I've ever said before). It would have been nice to see more code for some of the ideas that were presented to get a sense of the development time needed to create the visualizations presented. I'm always in favor of more code in presentations if it's well thought out.

    Not sure anyone's taking a video.

    Here are my (in-progress) slides on a couple rendering techniques (css3d transforms, canvas) and interaction (touches, brush, drag, zoom, orientation)

    I'll post the final slides during the meetup.
