What we're about
A month before I created this group, I was in Boston for a data vis conference. It was good, Keynote by Mike Bostock, the creator of D3 and there were awesome presentations by pioneers in the industry. But I realised the best part of this conference is actually talking to the participants:
I met a group of people from pharmaceutical company doing visualization for clinical trial results;
There was also a man from insurance company building massive dashboards for actuaries;
I met developer from Uber building their own visualization library to monitor rides;
I talked to more than 50 people, each with their own uniquely interesting use case. That was AMAZING. I looked for similar group in Singapore but there isn't any. So I started DataVis Singapore.
Calling all data visualization enthusiasts in Singapore.
This group is open to anyone in any industy, we don't care if you are a user of R, python, D3, WebGL, Vega, Qlik, Tableau, PowerBI, Excel. Everyone is welcome.
I hope this group will become a place for data vis folks to connect with each other.
People can come here when they have problems and need suggestion from field experts;
Or when they create something awesome and want to share with others;
Or when there is a new technology and want to discuss;
Or maybe just as an excuse to drink with like minded people.
Welcome to Data Vis Singapore.
