schedule Jul 25th 10:30 AM - 11:15 AM place ESquire Hall

Advances in technology is leading to an exponential growth of available data. However, there is a significant difference between possessing data and making sense of it. Data visualization helps to overcome this issue by representing relevant data in an easy to understand manner, and is even more important in the field of Health Care as data in this case may have a direct impact on human life. Data-Driven Documents (D3) is a modern day tool which helps in creating interactive visualizations of complex data and does so easily by binding data with elements in a document.

 During this presentation, we will understand the meaning and importance of relevant data-visualization, types of data-visualization and the factors that come into play when choosing a particular type of visualization. We will also learn about D3 as a visualization tool and go through some examples of visualizations using D3. We will also focus on importance of visualizations from the perspective of Healthcare.

    Thanks for the interesting proposal Aman. IMHO 90 mins demo is a very long demo on this topic. Could you please consider reducing the time?

    Also can you please update your proposal with links to slides and videos from your past presentations?

      Hi Naresh. I actually intend to give a demo/tutorial of about 60 to 70 mints. Does that seem fine to you ? And will a 4 minute video explaining in brief about the session be enough ? Will provide the link to the video soon.

        Thanks for the prompt response, Aman. Can you please update the proposal with a detailed time-wise breakup of your topics? That will really help us visualise how you plan to use the 60-70 minutes for the demo.

        Yes a 3-4 mins intro video would be great. Please update the proposal with the link.

          I have added the approximate breakup for the topics. I have also added the link to a basic introduction to the session that I have proposed. Please let me know if anything else needs modification or clarification.

            Thanks for the video, Aman. The video really gives us confidence about your presentation skills.

            Based on the topic breakup, I think you should be able to fit the topic in a 45 mins session. Please think about this.

            Also can you please share a link to an example where you've used D3 to visualise the data? This will really help us understand your subject matter expertise.

               Thanks for the positive response. I have added the link (http://www.slideshare.net/wizardaman/examples-of-d3-visua)  demonstrating some examples of D3 visualizations done by me in the proposal. I will be going through more examples during the session at the conference. Please let me know if any further clarification is required

              I tried to reduce the duration of the session but am finding it difficult to fit it in 45 mins as there is a lot to talk about D3 and going through small snippets of codes for a lot of features will take considerable time. However, if you think the audience will not be able to focus for so long then I can try to reduce the content of the presentation in order to fit it in 45 mins. Please let me know your suggestions .

                Thanks for the slides.

                Personally I think 90 mins would be a lot for time esp. for a demo. There will be other parallel sessions and you might loose audience because they would want to go to smaller sessions and get more exposure to different topics.

                  I had said I intend the session to be around 60-70 mints where a major portion of the session would be dealing actually seeing and understanding codes and then seeing the effects of those codes. That would range from data manipulation to data binding , updating atributes removing data, updating scales, zoom , transitions and other features so that the audience can learn as we proceed. Do you think I should reduce a portion or try to cover some portions a bit faster? Sorry for so many queries .

                    No problem about the questions. We appreciate it.

                    I would prioritise the most important topics and focus on them. This will ensure the participants get the best.

                      I am updating the session duration to 45 minutes. Thanks.
