Refresh DC is a community of web designers, developers, and other new media professionals working together to refresh the creative, technical, and professional aspects of their trades in the Washington, DC, area.
Our goal is simple: bring together the best and brightest new media professionals in the DC metro area so that we may learn from one another. Our industry is too rich for any one person to “know it all.” That’s where we come in.
As data becomes a larger part of our lives, knowing how to analyze and express that data effectively is quickly becoming essential skill for web professionals of all stripes.
Speakers Isabel Knight and Matt Camp will present a talk and mini data-vis workshop designed to equip you with the basic skills and mindset needed to help you become productive with data-vis right away.
In Data-Vis 101 you'll learn:
• How to decide which chart to use
