D3 Workshop - Create your first D3.js scatter plot!
**Note: There is limited space for this event. If you sign up, please make sure that you attend OR change your rsvp to "not attending" as soon as your plans change.** *****About the Workshop***** Mollie will walk you through how to create your first D3.js scatter plot, complete with some fun interactions! This will be a beginner's workshop and no background knowledge of D3.js or javascript necessary. "D3.js is a JavaScript library for manipulating documents based on data. D3 helps you bring data to life using HTML, SVG, and CSS. D3’s emphasis on web standards gives you the full capabilities of modern browsers without tying yourself to a proprietary framework, combining powerful visualization components and a data-driven approach to DOM manipulation." - *****About the Speaker***** Mollie Pettit wears many technical hats including that of a data visualizer, a data scientist, and an instructor of both fields. In her career, Mollie has worked on projects involving a wide variety of problems including but not limited to interactive data visualization, exploratory data analysis, corporate data tool creation, course development, instruction, and ideation. Mollie previously worked as a data visualization (D3.js) and data science instructor at Metis and a data scientist / consultant with Datascope Analytics. Mollie currently works as a freelancer. ACLU-IL and The New Yorker are just some of her recent clients. When Mollie is not being a technical nerd, she swing dances, listens to educational podcasts, and strives to be all-around fabulous. Additionally, as you all know, she's started up this Data Viz Meetup group (and is very excited about it!). *****Other Notes***** This workshop will be located in a conference room in the G2Crowd office (18th floor of Civic Opera Building). Thank you to G2Crowd for graciously hosting this event and providing drinks and noms! You can arrive as early as 5:30 to mingle and get settled. Workshop will start promptly at 6pm. Looking forward to seeing you there! And as always, if you are interested in giving a talk or being involved in the organization of the Chicago Data Viz Community meetup in some way, reach out! :)

Upcoming Meetups

What we're about

The goal of this group is to help to foster a data viz community here in Chicago. <3

The plan is to host talks, intro classes, discussion groups, hack sessions, etc. that revolve around advanced data visualization.

We want the encourage the data viz community of Chicago to be involved in this meetup in whatever way seems exciting for them. Have an idea for an event? Want to give a talk? Want to help organize? Perhaps you've been working on a really awesome data viz project that you wanna show off? Ping us!

Note: The group organizer works mostly in D3.js; therefore, a lot of the current event ideas revolve around D3.js. That said, if you would like to see/plan events focusing on other data viz tools, there is certainly room for people to organize such events.
