An Introduction to Data Journalism - Winny de Jong
Since the world in 2016 is very much a digital world almost everything could be, and most of it is, described using numbers. The last couple years there has been a revival of data within the field of journalism. It was rediscovered that data can be a source for a story, or the tool that tells a story, or both. Datajournalist Winny de Jong will give an introduction into the world of data journalism - with a special focus on visualization.
Visualizing data with D3.js - Nadieh Bremer
D3 has taken over the world of online (interactive) data visualization. Strangely, it is not a charting library, but that is perhaps one of the reasons it works so well. During my talk I'd like to show you a small piece of the enormous set of possibilities that you can create with D3 through showcasing a few of my personal projects. I'll also give an introduction to creating visualizations with D3 and how easy it can be to create something fun and interactive.
