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, & 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 & learn. To improve your data visualization skills you have to practice.
Quick ways to build d3 examples:
