We all remember when Steve Jobs declared iOS would not support Adobe Flash, and some of us know the attempted and mostly failed work-arounds. Not long afterwards HTML5 was announced and became the suggested platform to replace everything Flash once enabled. Adobe engineers knew there was more potential to HTML5 and, among other upgrades, began work on Data Visualization standards for HTML5.
Data Visualization DC is happy to host Andy Trice, technical evangelist with Adobe Systems and developer of data visualization with web standards (link below). As has been requested through the surveys everyone has diligently completed, DVDC is organizing the first interactive event. The first half will be an introduction to the new HTML5 Data Viz capabilities, and the second half a hands on exploration of those capabilities, as well as some basic coding examples. Andy, myself, and volunteers from Data Community DC will be supporting the interactive portion of the event, answering questions, and discussing the potential of this new capability. Hopefully this format will be a new standard going forward.
