DataViz Showdown: a comparison of different data visualisation libraries

Peter Passaro, Tuesday February 11, 2014, 19:00 at The Skiff

There are now a wide variety of data visualisation libraries available for use to make your data beautiful. I'll do a review of the different options available, focusing on 3 that are specifically Python based (Matplotlib, Seaborn, and Bokeh) and one javascript library that is the reigning champion of dataviz for the web (d3.js). I'll highlight how each of them works, when they might be appropriate, and generally how to use them effectively.
