Join us for the first Uber Visualization Night (https://www.uber.com/p/visualization/visualization-nights/), a Meetup series about designing and building large-scale visualization applications.

Processing and rendering millions of points in the browser can be challenging, but is an ever-growing need at a data-centric company like Uber where users gather insights from large datasets. Deck.gl, an open-source JavaScript framework harnessing WebGL, was built to solve this problem.

We will start the evening learning about deck.gl from one of the original creators. Deck.gl enables developers to create complex visualizations via composition of layers and makes it easy to package and share new visualizations as reusable layers.

Later in the evening, you will get to see deck.gl in action as Shan showcases an application built using deck.gl and last, we will wrap up our evening hearing about how Movement has evolved to help improve urban planning around the world.

We look forward to meeting you!
