Join your fellow data visualizers on Tuesday June 27th for the Vizapalooza lighting talks at Chief. Just in case you thought this summer couldn’t get any hotter … we’re bringing you the biggest, the best, and the most Bayesian data visualizations you’ve ever seen!!

The night’s presentation will have three set speakers - But that’s not all … we have one open slot reserved for YOU. We want one human or self-aware A.I. in the audience to volunteer and showcase their data visualization projects.
This session’s confirmed speakers include - two previous speakers and re-cap their work along with one amazing dashboard showcase from a new member of DVDC.

On first, Dr. Ericka Menchen-Trevino will show us her internet privacy app ‘Web Historian’ and explain how “Big Brother” or even “Mom” could be watching your every move online.

She’ll be followed by, Archna Bhandari, VP of Data and Analytics at Expert Systems, who will show us how Fortune 500 companies and ground breaking startups head hunt for the world’s best biotechnology and medical specialist using Expert System’s “Bio Pharma Navigator.”

Finally, for his fist time in the big leagues – David Saeger, a data analyst and developer with USAID by day – and a fighter of Fake News and eater of pizza by night, will showcase his dashboard jujitsu with DC.JS a new JavaScript charting library built to support interactive visualizations of cross fitted multi-dimensional data in real time.
