Here are a couple of examples.
- Olympic Records Evolution = Olympic Medal Count vs. GDP Per Capita, by Year
- The Gap = The Gap between Gold and Silver medals
I wondered whether other people in London were using d3.js so I decided to hold a drinkup.
We had about 15 attendees, some of whom also attended the Londinium MMXII Hackathon, which is very impressive given that we only had 1 week notice period and changed the date/time/venue twice. Also a few london.js people merged in after their meetup.
Many of us already started playing with d3, and some of us even uses d3 for his/her day job and we discussed our favourite d3 data visualisations - one of the participants suggesting the Obama's 2012 Budget Proposal I listed earlier. There were a few laptops/iphones/ipads opened to show off what we had done and it was a shame that I did not have a chance to look at everybody's work.
With the success of this first drinkup I am thinking about organising a proper meetup in September (or October). The topic of the first meetup is to replicate what we've done (show and tell, lightning talks) with a bigger screen so that all the participants have a chance to see everybody's hacks.
I created a separate Google Group to discuss the meetup, please join us if you are interested.
