Presented by Chris Viau, MTLDATA and DecodeMTL

[D3.js]( (which stands for Data-Driven Documents) is widely acknowledged as the premiere data visualization tool in any programming environment. This workshop addresses not just the basics of datavis design and D3, but essential knowledge required to work in the datavis field that isn't taught in books. You will learn about the day-to-day work of a datavis developer, the datavis pipeline as a conceptual framework, tools that can be used without needed to code, and other things instructor Christophe Viau has learned during a career working for multiple Silicon Valley startups. Participants will end up with a good understanding of dataviz as a practice, and will leave equipped with many resources for continuing learning.

This workshop will be presented in English, and assumes the participants will have some familiarity with coding, but not necessarily with data visualization. Must bring your own laptop with a text editor (sublime text, text wraggler, notepad++, etc) installed. [Christophe Viau, Ph.D.]( is one of a handful of world-renowned D3.js developers. He gives presentations and workshops around the world (most recently in Quebec City and Tallinn, Estonia), and is currently working on [an open book about D3 and datavis]( He is well-known for his thorough [gallery of over 2400 D3.js examples](
