Details

We would like to welcome you all to the second Nulab Developers Tech Talks edition, an evening dedicated to data visualization practices and moderated by our wonderful guest, Nadieh Bremer.

Nadieh Bremer is a graduated Astronomer, turned Data Scientist, turned Data Visualization Designer. While working for a consultancy & fintech company she discovered her passion for the visualization of data and is now working as a freelancing data visualization designer. As 2017's "Best Individual" in the Information is Beautiful Awards, she focuses on uniquely crafted (interactive) data visualizations that both engage and enlighten its audience. You can follow Nadieh's work at https://www.visualcinnamon.com/ or on Twitter at https://twitter.com/NadiehBremer

The evening will be divided into two parts:

- the first part will be a talk in which Nadieh will take you through several of her data visualization projects, both from the business environment of her day job and the experiments made in her evenings. Hopefully, by the end you’ll want to step outside of your "visualization" comfort zone and create (custom) charts that best display the insights in the data

- the second part will be a hands-on, where you can apply and
experiment with ideas and techniques presented by Nadieh in her talk,
to create your own data visualizations
