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.
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.
