Tim Davis: Deploying a Massive Multitouch Data Experience on MacOS

What does it take to build a multi-user, multitouch data experience on three 100” 4k displays? A little bit of Python, a pinch of Node, a ton of Swift, an iMac Pro, a few Raspberry Pis, and a lot of hacking Apple’s core technologies like NSWindow, Apple Maps, NSCollectionViews and more. In this talk, Tim Davis lays bare key hurdles he faced and innovations he deployed in building a cutting edge visualization system – and where to get all the open-source code.
