    Great slate of speakers. I thoroughly enjoyed listening to each one. I usually dwell on the tech side of datavis, so this event was a nice change of pace.

    I wish there had only been two speakers with more time for QnA. Four made the event feel both rushed and really long. Too much of a good thing...

    Excellent. It's like going to university but you get many great professors at once in a single class session. Thanks for organizing and sharing, to the hosts and the guest speakers.

    Sad to miss this one as I spend every day telling stories with data. btw, my company Allegiance is hiring user experience designers. experience with data and story telling with data are bonus skills :) We help our clients find patterns and insights in their daily customer feedback. It's for full time work out of our Salt Lake or Austin office.
