We met Monday night at the WU Gründungszentrum in Vienna. After some initial networking we kicked off the evening with a presentation of KJUBIT and an introduction to KIVU Technologies. After the formalities were done it was time for our guest talk!
Frazer from Kivu Technologies started his talk wth the very basics of D3. Doing that has enabled everyone, regardless of his/her background to understand how D3 works. He managed to go from the very basics to more advanced applications without loosing anyone!
The whole presentation including the code can be retrieved here –> goo.gl/Mdux8P
As a follow up to our meet-up we like to announce that we are going to continue our data visualisation initiative. We would be more than pleased to receive suggestions with respect to some hot topics that you are interested in!
In the mean time we provide you with a list of open data sources as we have promised at the end of the post! ENJOY! 🙂
