Let's get together and discuss data visualization! We will meet once a month and discuss the latest viz for social good project(s), trends of the field, projects we're working on, unsolved challenges, have guest speakers and network. We process visual information much faster than text, tend to have longer engagement times and better retain the data. So if you're working with data today, you'll be needing visualizations, dashboards and reporting soon.
You can be a beginner, expert or simply curious about datavis. I started this group so that enthusiasts and professionals of all skill levels can see and learn from each about how information visualisation is done , and how design thinking can help.
As a positive side effect - we often also discuss data science, analytics and machine learning, and how to best use visualizations to explore, represent, and interpret models.
