Mark DiMarco spends time building out data visualizations with D3 and integrating them into common front-end architectures. He also recently released DataMaps, an easy to use library for data integration with maps.
D3 and Data Visualizations
Mark will give an intro to D3.js and data visualizations as well as some real world use cases for using these tools. Using an interactive programming style, he will navigate the ins and outs of simplifying data, manipulating it, and displaying it in a way that the end user can understand. He'll compare D3 to some other popular charting libraries and note the reasons when you'd pick one style of data visualizations over another.
