About this workshop
As more and more devices are tracking, checking-in and tweeting, we suffer under the deluge of data. A good data scientist needs to be able to wade through everything to find and tell the underlying story. This workshop will get you started by guiding you through the basics of chart and graph design. From reducing clutter and telling the right story, a clear and concise graphic is key to understanding and improving your craft.
Designing with Data is the foundation needed to progress from basic, atomic charts and graphs into more complex visualizations. You first need to conquer the basics, understand the niche uses for each graph type, then apply everything you learn to complex visualizations and infographics. After this workshop, you will be capable of tackling any data driven design problem.
Data scientist is predicted to be one of the hottest jobs in the near future, don’t you want to be onboard?
Who is this workshop for?
For anyone who is interested in getting started in this field, folks who end-up wearing 10 hats at work and one is “make this report look pretty” or even people who are fed-up with pedestrian excel charts and are taking it into their own hands to improve the situation. You hire a professional copy-editor and proof-reader, but ignore the visualizations – now you can be that expert. You will need to be comfortable with any text-editor and have a basic knowledge of an illustration program such as Illustrator or Inkscape etc.
