Metis welcomes Ian Johnson (https://www.linkedin.com/in/iandavidjohnson), co-founder of the Bay Area d3 User Group (http://www.meetup.com/Bay-Area-d3-User-Group/), which has more than 3,700 members and counting. As part of our speaker series, he'll discuss d3 (short for Data-Driven Documents), the popular tool used for producing dynamic, interactive data visualizations in web browsers.
He'll go into detail about d3's example ecosystem, take everyone through the rich variety of both visualization types and coding techniques, and show how students can navigate the thousands of examples themselves. Finally, Ian will demo how he and many others quickly riff off existing examples using blockbuilder.org (http://blockbuilder.org/) (the open source tool that he built for d3 utilization).
Small bites and drinks will be served.
See you February 22nd and catch up with @ThisIsMetis on Twitter and Instagram beforehand!
