We're back with a data dive! Join us at App Academy (https://www.appacademy.io/) to dive into some open datasets. We'll create visualizations, get un-stuck, and have a data-driven good time. To make the most of the night, plan to come out with a hack-size vis project in mind. Remember, these jam sessions are not exclusive to those steeped in D3 experience. These are meant to be smaller sessions than our norm where data divers from all areas come together to show interest, offer encouragement, struggle with friends, put their fingers to the keys and learn. To improve your data visualization skills you have to practice. • Quick ways to build d3 examples: interactive editor (http://blockbuilder.org/) code notebook (https://beta.observablehq.com/) • Search the d3 examples to fill your mind with ideas (http://blockbuilder.org/search) • A gallery for even more ideas (https://github.com/mbostock/d3/wiki/Gallery) • Tutorials to exercise your mind (https://github.com/mbostock/d3/wiki/Tutorials)
Join us for a presentation by Curran Kelleher on Data Visualization & Education at Scale with VizHub, an online platform for data visualization and code editing. Originally developed as a richer alternative to bl.ocks.org & Blockbuilder, this software has evolved during its use as a teaching tool over two years of use in online graduate courses. It's the platform used for creating screencast lecture videos in which visualizations are created using React & D3, as well as the platform in which students do their assignments. Use for education is only the beginning. Plans are in the works for VizHub to support a much wider audience of data visualization practitioners, from novice to professional. Beta testing for VizHub 2.0 (a complete overhaul) is underway presently. Give it a try! 👉 https://beta.vizhub.com/curran Bio: Curran Kelleher is passionate about data visualization, data exploration, interactive graphics and Open Source. After receiving his Ph.
