  • GraphViz: The Open-Source Body Scanner for Code, Systems, and Data

    by Matt Youell

    Do you generate, manage, or analyze a lot of data? Do you develop software? Do you like pretty pictures? If your answer was "yes" to zero or more of these questions, this talk is for you.

    GraphViz is an open source program for displaying the structure of data. We'll discuss:

    • Graphs, GraphViz, and DOT, the data format that drives GraphViz
    • How to peer inside of a running system with a little bit of code and a whole lot of GraphViz
    • Debugging and state modeling techniques for programmers
    • Techniques for finding patterns in data sets.
    • Problems with GraphViz

    Developers! Say goodbye to println debugging

    Analysts! Find simple ways to look at systems and data.

    Suits! Find patterns and opportunities you didn't know were there.

    Aesthetes! See the natural beauty of data.

    At 3:45pm to 4:30pm, Tuesday 21st June
