MEET KENT ENGLISH: Kent is a senior developer at CrowdRiff. There are very few things he loves more than learning. Being a polyglot programmer and a Math enthusiast, he's always looking for better ways to explore and visualize data. Kent is also very keen on problems involving Graphs and his latest hackathon entry won him first prize at the GraphTO meetup.
Pro-Talk [30-45 min]: Kent will walk through some of the core D3/NVD3 concepts, terminology and tips/tricks. He will also demonstrate how to load a CSV dataset into D3 and show some sample visualizations.
Live Coding Tutorial [90 min]: We will explore the Toronto Parking Ticket dataset. A clean subset of the data will be provided to help answer the following questions:
1. What days and times are you least likely to get a ticket?
2. Which areas are most heavily patrolled?
3. What are the min, max and average fine amounts by infraction?
4. How many fines are issued to visitors from outside Ontario?
