Become a Data Viz Wiz

We're going to explore the do's and don't's of data viz, and how to help make data more meaningful and actionable.  Get your HTML5 and D3.js (drinking) shoes on folks, we're going for a data-driven ride... 

As always, we'll have free fooddrinks, and networking with the UX community.  We have a top-notch set of speakers and topics, including:

Hunter Whitney
UX Designer, Author, and Contributor to UX Magazine 
"Data Detectives"
You don’t have to be a detective for your job to involve detective work. Various kinds of data visualizations can help solve mysteries using partial clues that have complex relationships. Using examples from medicine, science, and security, this talk will show how visualizations can enhance the investigative process.  Hunter is author of the book Data Insights: New Ways to Visualize and Make Sense of Data.  

Luca Candela
Director of Product Management, DataPad
"A Systematic Approach to Good Data Visualization"
What distinguishes good from bad data visualization? You don’t have to be Tufte (or read all his books) to learn a few basic rules for visualizing data effectively. Those basic rules will go a long way towards communicating clearly without misleading your audience. We’ll touch on proper data visualization workflows, rules for decision making when equivalent options are available and designing with the human visual system in mind. Luca Candela is the Director of Product Management at DataPad and the organizer of the UX Eye.

Joe Golike
Design Technologist, ICIX, previously with Trulia
"Thinking in D3"
Joe introduces an overview of the popular JavaScript framework for data visualization, D3.  From a beginner's perspective, Joe walks through the background of D3 and when and where to best use it, in addition to some recent examples he's worked on while at ICIX and previously at Trulia.

Thanks to our sponsors BalsamiqAxure , Remote TestKit by NTT Resonant, and VMware for supporting us.
