Data Vizards

"It's magic!" Or so they say. Creating beautiful and enchanting visualizations out of nowhere. The art of data visualization brings us the possibility of identifying patterns, understanding the story and grasping the latest trends. And that's not all!

During this meetup we will host two practitioners active in this domain. Both speakers will give a 30 minute presentation, with some time for questions afterwards. Between the talks there will be a brief break, and afterwards we will have room for further discussion and socializing.

And there is more! This time we will actually have a hybrid meetup! This one night, Viqtor Davis (data company in Utrecht) will be welcoming us in their office located in Utrecht (close to Leidsche Rijn train station). We will arrange some diner beforehand and then we'll get started with the first talk at 19:00! Doors are open 18:30.

Since we will only have limited space at the location, sign up quickly (using the Meetup link provided below). Want to enjoy the talks from home? We will also stream the talks.

Details:

Please let us know if we can do anything to make the event (more) accessible to you. We will try our best to accommodate any needs you may have. You can reach us through organisation@onehot.nl.

The collateral beauty of being a data analyst

Generating abstract visuals using machine learning

Personal projects are a great (and fun!) way to learn. They force you to apply your skills to a new context. For example: what happens when you try to blend a job as data analyst with a personal passion for music? In my talk, I’ll answer that question by taking you through the ongoing development of a personal project. A project that started with a data analysis question and generated some unintended, but beautiful, side-effects.
