I’d like to share some of my experiences about coding on an iPad…while in the desert of Namibia (*≧▽≦). Also list a few useful new SVG libraries I learned about (like animated SVG files, yes, a file). And of course show the end result of my Reasons to logo remix
I often get emails from people asking me diverse question about my path into data visualization. And after typing out my story for the Nth time I thought it might actually be easier if I just place it in a blog post. That way I can be more detailed & even add some images (ﾉ◕ヮ◕)ﾉ*:・ﾟ✧
I created the Hacking the Visual Norm talk for the Fronteers Conference, held in Amsterdam on October 6 & 7th 2016. During the talk I try to show several ways that you can go beyond the norm in the visualization of data. I use examples from both a business environment (things I made for Adyen or Deloitte) and personal projects. It revolves around Combining, Re-using, Designing & Hacking your visuals into something more effective and engaging.
A very short blog where you can find the slides and video of the 3-minute elevator pitch I gave at the Reasons to conference in Brighton, UK on Wednesday September 7th 2016. And as a bonus some images of things that didn’t make it!
I wanted to share something I recently build with d3.js which might be useful for other people as well; a bar chart in which you can “brush”. Handy for when you have a lot of categories/bars to show with limited space, but you don’t want to only show the top X. By using the brush technique, you give the choice to the user. They can decide which portion of the bars to see, only the top 5, bottom 10, 20 in the middle, or all at once.
