Simeon Franklin will briefly cover the concept of data visualisations with a couple of inspiring examples, describe the popular data visualization tool "Processing" and introduce pyprocessing, a port of the Processing drawing API to Python, by way of a couple of example programs he has written.
He will share the lessons that he has learned so far in creating data visualizations and discuss some drawbacks/workarounds specific to pyprocessing.
We have at least one lighting talk volunteer (Chen-Shan Chin on IPython hacks) and more would be good!
Simeon is a long time software developer, a long time Baypiggy, and recently became a full-time Python instructor for Marakana. He likes to fool around with Python in his spare time :)
