Data Vis Talk Next Week

Quick note for those of you in the Boston area. I’ll be giving a talk next Tuesday the 17th at CASCADE BOS. The talk is title “Data Visualization with Vega, Vega-Lite, and maybe just a little D3”.

Say hi if you can make it!

Talk description:

Vega and Vega-Lite are declarative formats for creating, saving, and sharing visualization designs. Visualizations are described in JSON, and generate interactive views using either HTML5 Canvas or SVG. We’ll explore these tools and what it’s like to develop visualizations using them. At the end we’ll take a quick peak at D3, the powerful library Vega is built on.
