Data in Sight: Making the Transparent Visual
Join us for data in sight: making the transparent visual, a hands-on data visualization competition held June 25th and 26th, 2011, at the Adobe Systems, Inc. offices in San Francisco’s SoMa District. Open to coders, programmers, developers, designers, scientists, members of the media—anyone who believes that data is divine and has ideas for bringing it to life.
On Saturday, hear from data visualization experts from the Netherlands and Switzerland—Dutch graphic designers from Catalogtree and LUST and Switzerland-based interaction designers from Interactive Things—then roll up your sleeves and get hacking on a data visualization of your own and compete for prizes.
