Welcome to the D3 London reboot ✨

In the first meetup after this long hiatus we will get to know two promising libraries for hex mapping and data vis plumbing and practical tips for integrating Mapbox GL and D3.

Lars Verspohl (https://twitter.com/lars_vers) will present d3-hexgrid, a brand-new library to produce geographically-aware hexagonal binning with better point density.

Ændrew Rininsland (https://twitter.com/aendrew) will introduce d3-bootloader, a library in use at the Financial Times to bootstrap modern D3 projects as the Visual Vocabulary.

Irene de la Torre (https://twitter.com/inari_ta) will present her visualisation of Amsterdam's boat traffic written with D3 and Mapbox GL for the MIT Senseable City Lab. She also will give practical tips for integrating both libraries.

We will also have a show and tell space where anyone will be able to present their latest project or discuss new graphics.

Please do add an email address at the RSVP. This is a requirement by WeWork and you won't be able to come if you don't add one.
