This meetup hasn't had a... well... meetup in a long time. Why don't we try and bring it back?!
We don't have a specific set of talks scheduled, so this is your chance. We're going to experiment with a new format here for suggesting talks you want to give or topics you want to hear about. If you'd like to give a talk or hear a talk, please to go the following page and submit some ideas. You can also upvote ideas/talks that catch your eye. Please make sure to indicate if you are willing to give the talk, they should be about 15 minutes each.
We will pick talks by June 15th, 2 weeks before the meetup.
On a separate note, please welcome our new co-organizer, Peter Beshai! Peter's recently joined our data visualization team at Bocoup and will be helping us get this meetup back on track. Thanks for your help, Peter!
If you are planning on joining us, please note that the Bocoup office has moved and we now have a new location near South Station: 201 South St, 1st Floor, Boston MA.
Last but not least, we will have some pizza and beer courtesy of the data visualization team here at Bocoup. Come hungry! If you or your company would like to sponsor future meetups, please contact us via meetup or email [masked].
Update: Talks have been selected!
The Nitty Gritty of Zooming and Panning in D3.js
Speaker: Peter Kerpedjiev
Technical details about how panning and zooming are implemented in D3.js. How are translations, scale factors, and scales related? How can we zoom to single points? How can we zoom to ranges? How can we limit the visible area?
Visualization with React and SVG tags + a side of basketball
Speaker: Peter Beshai @pbesh
I'll give a talk about how to do visualization using the built-in support for SVG tags that comes with React along with some of the drawbacks of the approach. I used to work at the Boston Celtics as a web dev/data vis guy, so I'll take a little bit of time at the start of the talk to explain how I got there if there is interest from the crowd.
