Mike Pennisi has been working hard with Irene Ros to create a framework for making reusable charts with d3.js. It's called d3.chart, and it was just open-sourced last month. After a brief overview of d3.js, Mike will discuss what it means for a chart to be reusable, how d3.chart has been built to encapsulate common usage patterns, when and how to use d3.chart, and the Future of the Framework. At times, he may veer into topics from his personal life, but we'll do our best to keep him focused on data vis.
Mike Pennisi is an Open Web Engineer at Bocoup and a contributor to a number of open source projects, including JSHint, Socket.io, and Backbone.LayoutManager.
