What we're about

This group is for anyone interested in visualization in the context of exploring, analyzing or communicating data. The group will focus on sharing experiences and pushing the boundaries of current state-of-the-art visualizations but also throwing in some brief intros into visualization based on d3.js, R, python or other software. Topics include: data visualization, model/result visualization, combining visualization with data mining/ machine learning approaches, scaling up visualization approaches, innovative interaction features.

Please be aware that meetups are a lot of fun but just work if everyone acts responsibly.

Thus the guideline for this group is common sense:

- RSVP with Yes, if you plan to come

- If your availability changes, cancel your RSVP until 5 days before the meetup

- If anything happens just before the meetup which prevents you from coming, send a short message to the organizer when you know you can't make it.

To maintain a sustainable group of motivated members our group policy is to remove members who don't follow these guidelines (e.g. RSVP Yes, but don't show up).

In-Person Meetup for Data Viz Enthusiasts!

Needs a location

After 2 years without an in-person meetup, I am excited to invite you to the upcoming in-person meetup which is now open for RSVP's!

Please join us if you would like to meet like-minded people in person and want to have fun while learning something new. Based on the feedback from the last online meetup, we will continue to explore and visualize some data with Observable - a truly collaborative visualization and exploration environment together - no prerequisites required.

Please note some organizational constraints:

  • There will be a cap of maximum 30 people for this meetup to ensure a comfortable setting for anyone attending. So, if you RSVP with Yes, please make sure to be there by 7pm.
  • If you RSVP'ed with yes and happen to change plans, please do cancel your RSVP so someone else can take your spot.

7:00 - 7:25 PM: Come together + drinks/food + chats

7:25 - 7:30 PM: Short intro + Austin Fraser

I am very grateful to have Austin Fraser sponsoring the location and the pizza & beverages.

If you want to introduce a job opening in the job market slot with a focus on data visualization please get in touch with me!

I am always looking for new speakers giving a short talk about a visualization related topic.
If you would like to get in touch with me for presenting cool visualizations you have seen somewhere, you have created yourself or getting involved in any way, don't hesitate to write me a message.

Looking forward to seeing you there!
