  • Jan 16, 2014 · 7:00 PM
  • Boston Globe

Google Charts provides a perfect way to visualize data on the web. From simple line charts to complex hierarchical tree maps, a large number of ready-to-use chart types are provided.

Tom Rybka will present great examples of Google Charts from around the web, talk about new capabilities recently added to the API, and give a brief introduction to how to get started using the tools.

Tom Rybka has been a Google engineer for 7 years, and leads the Google Charts team in Cambridge, MA.

    Totally agree with the comments below, a definite firehose of information that made me want to run out and start coding with charts. Along with teh Big Data implications, would definitely like to see demo of how someone could use for jazzing up/making interactive the more routine monthly or quarterly reports out of spreadsheets.

    Inspiring, but like drinking from a firehose. Tom gave tantalizing hints of the (incredible) power behind the Google Charts API, and it's going to take me a while to internalize it.
