    πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰ Talks πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰ πŸ—£Hot or Not: Concise Data Visualization with ApexCharts Heatmaps Heatmaps are a great way to summarize and explore trends in large-scale data sets. Anna Calinawan develops cancer data visualization tools for the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai using Vue.js. She will present a short introduction to implementing customizable, reactive heatmaps with Vue. Interested attendants can code along. Finally, she will demonstrate some of the ways heatmaps are used to facilitate cancer research. πŸ‘©β€πŸ’»Anna Calinawan Anna Calinawan is a software developer at Mount Sinai. She builds data visualization tools for cancer research with VueJS. πŸ—£For Argument's Sake: Programming as Essay Writing for Nerds I will discuss how I got started programming, and the ways I thought of programming from a writing background, I will then dive into essay writing, and the way essays are traditionally structured. From there I will demo a set of code on a REPL that builds an essay from the arguments made within coding (functions are essentially arguments). I'm basically making an argument for the existence of arguments in both essays and coding. The idea is to build an argument for coding as something that isn't esoteric, but actually very approachable if you're willing to learn the lingo. It's a set of ideas and arguments interconnected by systems and technologies. It's an apparatus like anything else is, and anyone should be able to learn it, even a little. πŸ‘¨β€πŸ’» Patrick Aloia Patrick Aloia is a software engineer, writer, and comedian from New York. He does not do birthday parties, but he's open to the idea of them. πŸ—£πŸ”πŸ’°Want to speak β€’ host β€’ sponsor?

We do not tolerate harassment of our members or organizers. Be kind to others. While VueNYC is a professional community, it's also a community of friends. We ask you to be aware of the fact that conversations that may be appropriate within the context of a specific friendship may not be appropriate in a public space or with someone you don't know well. Be careful in the words that you choose. Remember that sexist, racist, and other exclusionary jokes can hurt those around you. We also follow the Recurse Center's social rules, which are summarized below: - No well-actually’s - No feigned surprise - No backseat driving - No subtle -isms The social rules are lightweight. You should not be afraid of breaking a social rule. These are things that everyone does, and breaking one doesn’t make you a bad person. If someone says, "hey, you just feigned surprise," or "that’s subtly sexist," don’t worry. Just apologize, reflect for a second, and move on. ------------------------------------------------------------------ πŸ’πŸ‘πŸŒ‡A big thank you to our hosts CBRE (Kamilla) πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘
