First Meetup! Present the idea & the tools, decide on the future directions

 

The first meetup will be in a very informal and central location, at the first floor of St. Oberholz in Rosenthaler Platz. Thanks to Deltamethod which is sponsoring us, there will be free drinks for the participants!

There will be the possibility to use a beamer for anyone who wants to present his content, but generally this environment is more apt for grassroots discussions. There is plenty of sockets and the web connection is good, so bring your tools if you like to, and let's choose the main topics and the platforms where future discussions will live.

Maybe some people just expected to sit down and stare at some presentations, so if you don't like the new venue or the intention, please leave your place free so that other persons can subscribe or we can have a more realistic idea of the final number. Thanks everyone and see you tomorrow!

    Even though I was a little but late I really enjoyed the meetup and had good contacts. If anybody is interested I can hold a little presentation about pros and cons of colors in visualization. I do not have that much experience I must admit but am curious about the experiences of the audience.

      Sounds good to me. I have some broad maybe not so deep knowledge but I am keen on improving that and sharing my knowledge. Lets chat in person..

      Hey Martin i really like the idea because the topic is not technologic. James will present something more related to development, thus it's nice to balance with a presentation on usability. I'm pretty curious!

    Hey guys, i was really happy to meet you in person. I'm sorry if i didn't have the time to talk and deepen with everyone as i wanted. Here you can find the slides: https://github.com/danse/24 but obviously they were just a part of the discussion. This is the repository for the "cardinal points", the 8-point challenge i proposed you https://github.com/Data-Visualization-Berlin/cardinals
    See you on google groups, or on the platforms you'll choose, i need your help to improve! Thanks for being there!

    Hey, We don't have a nice logo yet, but we have a google group to stay in touch, ask some question and prepare the next meetup !

    You can join here : http://groups.google.com/group/datavizberlin

    Thanks for this great presentation Francesco. I'm looking forward for the next one and would be glad to show you some d3.geo work.

      That would be perfect, i don't know anything about "geography", and the project you showed looks like black magic to me! This time i will have more time to organise, the next meetup will probably be at the end of August

      Interesting links i have to dig into d3, Cubism and cube to see what i can get of it. If there is a presentation at an event that would be cool too. @Marit splunk looks nice but it is not open source :(

    Hello folks, I will be late because of work. I hope I can make it until half past 9. Looking forward to see you all =)

    "Data Visualisation" is a good name which reminds the huge data visualisation group in London, but a term i like slightly more is "Information Visualisation". For those who don't know anything about it, wiki always helps!

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Information_visualization

    Especially for Martin this article can be interesting because it states the difference with scientific viz which is mostly used in medicine.

    Hello all, let me say that this amazing and unexpected. I'm personally in the theme, but i did not expected so many interested people, and this becomes also a logistic problem.

    We could have stick with the venue and restrict access, but i did not want to exclude anyone. As a result, an alternative place must be found and i'm working on that, but i also ask for your suggestions and proposals.

    - minimum requirements: a fresh place with internet connection and space for all of us
    - ideal place: beamer, audio system, tables, possibility to buy some drinks and food, and central

    Write here so that we can discuss or write to me at [masked]. I would try anyway to stick with this date, i'll keep you updated.

    Hey, cool stuff. I'm fairly new to data visualization topics but wish to learn more ;-) Looking forward to the first meeting!

    July 18, 2013

    • francesco o.

      If you wish to learn, there is plenty of topics ... so many that you need a group to tackle them!

    Hello, I´m interested in dealing with data in a creative and visual way and discovered this just newborn meet up group. I´d love to attend next meet ups. I´ll be away on 24th but hopefully able to attend the next meet up.

    For who is interested to the technological part, i'm going to give a small presentation about d3 (https://github.com/mbostock/d3/wiki/Gallery) tomorrow at BerlinJS http://berlinjs.org/
    The presentation will be focused on the technology, even if it's impossible to avoid the many other topics related to the library. Anyway all the content i can provide about d3 will land on this group sooner or later.

    I'm curious to meet other people who are driven to use technology to enhance our humane experience. See you all on Weds! Here's a warm up session Saturday: http://www.meetup.com/Das-Baumhaus-Berlin-Project-Development-Collaboration/events/128544932/

  • francesco o.

    Wow, 50 joins in few hours, and already 15 attending the first meetup! Cool, i'm really curious to meet you guys! I hope there will be also someone from hacks/hackers since the two groups are strongly related.

    In the following days we can define better some details, feel free to express your ideas about the activities for the meetup! Depending on what we want to do, we could opt for a closed place with a beamer or an open place with a barbecue!
