We've never before had access to so much data about the world. Organisations are collecting more data than they know how to process or make sense of.
Data visualisation is the art and science of creating a visual form for data that makes it easier to understand large amounts of complex information on any subject. Engineering one requires the ability to manipulate and display data, according to the needs of the viewer.
In our one-day workshop, you will learn how to get started with building your own data visualisations with D3. The day includes an introduction to SVG, the web standard language for vector graphics.
Peter Cook comes from a background in computer-aided geometric design, having worked for ten years at Siemens, developing software in C and C++ to process and visualise complex geometry and graph structures.
More recently, he has been working as an independent front-end engineer for web-based visualisations.
Some of his recent experiments: tracking domestic energy usage, world map of migration, UK wind map and fractal tree.

We want to spread this knowledge far and wide, and we've tried to make the workshop as affordable as possible. If you are unwaged and cannot afford it but would greatly benefit from it, please contact us.
