Viz & Tell

Get up in front of your peers and talk about a viz project you're working on for 5 minutes. This is a great opportunity to get feed back on your work and to practice your presentation skills in a safe space. If you are interested in presenting, then please email ([masked]) to let us know you want to talk.

Speaker Notes:

You're one of the coolest people in the DC area. You really like data visualization and you're excited to show your work to others. You're also a kind person who can provide constructive criticism to others.
