Hello Hacks and Hackers in Vancouver,
We're joining forces with Vancouver Data Visualization [VDV] to be part of their event:
"Telling Stories With Data"
The awesome team at VDV has brought Nigel Stoodley of Tableau Software to help us navigate the data driven world and help us get meaning out of the complexity! Tableau’s web products are used by bloggers, journalists, and major media web sites to share data online as interactive visualizations.
They will use Wikileaks data to show how Data Visualization helps people find and understand the story in the data. We think this is a great learning opportunity for Hacks & Hackers alike!
They also will show us how to use interactive analytics in blogs and documents, and how to share our stories with thousands of users.
We are happy to co-host the event. Big thanks to Jesse and Wayne of VDV for keeping us connected.
[you should consider joining the VDV group if you are interested re: unique representations of data!]
Hope to see some HH folks there.
