Data Visualization Hackfest

A session at Code4Lib 2013

Monday 11th February, 2013

1:30pm to 4:30pm (CST)

Want to hack/design/plan/document on a team of people who enjoy learning by creating? Interested in data visualization? Well, this hackfest is for you. Not familiar with the concept of a hackfest? See Roy Tennant's "Where Librarians Go To Hack" and the page for the Access 2010 Hackfest. We propose a half-day hackfest with a focus on visualization library data -- think stuff like library catalog data, access/circulation statistics, etc. Here's how it works, roughly:

  • we'll (you'll!) do lightning tutorials for some data visualization tools, toolkits (R? d3js? ?), datasets.
  • we'll separate into groups and hack on stuff.
  • at the end of the day, we'll present our progress.

Not a code hacker? No worries; all skill sets and backgrounds are valuable!
