Visualizing HTML5

We all remember when Steve Jobs declared iOS would not support Adobe Flash, and some of us know the attempted and mostly failed work-arounds. Not long afterwards HTML5 was announced and became the suggested platform to replace everything Flash once enabled. Adobe engineers knew there was more potential to HTML5 and, among other upgrades, began work on Data Visualization standards for HTML5.

Data Visualization DC is happy to host Andy Trice, technical evangelist with Adobe Systems and developer of data visualization with web standards (link below). As has been requested through the surveys everyone has diligently completed, DVDC is organizing the first interactive event.  The first half will be an introduction to the new HTML5 Data Viz capabilities, and the second half a hands on exploration of those capabilities, as well as some basic coding examples. Andy, myself, and volunteers from Data Community DC will be supporting the interactive portion of the event, answering questions, and discussing the potential of this new capability.  Hopefully this format will be a new standard going forward.

Agenda
6:30 - Food & Drink, Networking
7:00 - Andy Trice: Data Visualization with Web Standards
7:30 - Break into Presentation, Experience, and Developer groups
8:15 - Individuals' feedback from each group
8:30ish - Adjourn for Data Drinks

 

Andrew Trice Bio
Andy comes from a computer science background, and typically approaches data visualizations from the developer perspective as opposed to a data scientist perspective. Andy puts an emphasis on the "nuts and bolts" of how to create an interactive visualization, the techniques/technologies involved, and understanding the experience of the user.  Andrew Trice is a technical evangelist with Adobe Systems. Andrew brings to the table over a decade of experience designing, implementing, and delivering rich applications for the web, desktop, and mobile devices. Andrew is an experienced architect, team leader, accomplished speaker, and published author, specializing in immersive experiences, mobile development, realtime data systems, and data visualization.

    Great session. I think the presentation was top notch; always good to hear what Andrew Trice has to say, especially for mobile apps. I think people liked the hands on add on as well, although the logistics are obviously a little daunting for a large group.

      Yeah, it went pretty well considering all estimates were that only a few people would be interested in the code section. Next time we plan to have a much larger table set up with more room. Also, if you know any companies that might like to provide large touch screens, please let me know.

    Hi Everyone, Thank you for attending last night's event and making it great! I've posted all the content and an audio recording, which is available at: http://www.tricedesigns.com/2013/06/06/datavizdc-meetup-images-resources-audio-recording/

    Unfortunately, the video feed didn't turn out, due to an error on my part. Feel free to reach out with any questions!

    I enjoyed the examples and tools given. I think that some sort of class would be amazing that walked through how to create the infographic. I understand the different methods used, but also being new to programming it could have been useful to see something that the speaker created and how they came up with all the elements.

    Andy covered all of the key capabilities with great examples. But he also did a great job contextualizing everything and answering a wide range of questions.

    Great meetup. Glad to be able to see how HTML5 standards are evolving to solve real world problems.

    anyone who wants to post any code examples after the fact for those of us who can't make it will receive a not-insignificant boost in karma.

      I will be posting the presentation, all samples, and a video recording after the meetup tomorrow. Thanks, Andrew Trice

    I'll be interested to meet an speak with anyone working with Sencha Charts and/or Highcharts in mobile.

    Looking forward to the first part but not sure about the second: I'm good at presentation and usability but not a coder. (I'm good at copying and pasting code, though:))

    May 22, 2013

    • Sean Moore G.

      Hopefully my email this morning assuaged your concerns, we'll have something for everyone :)

    Harlan asked a good question, and yes, bring laptops or tablets. Everyone will be able to access the examples individually, explore on their own, work with others, etc.

    May 21, 2013

  • Harlan H.

    We should bring laptops for the interactive portion?

    Looking forward to this. HTML5 seems like a promising area for sharing analysis.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
