“A picture is worth a thousand words. An interface is worth a thousand pictures.” – Ben Shneiderman
But what if you could write an interactive data-vis in the same easy way that you can write markdown to create html pages. Visdown allows you to do this by writing simple declarative text specification for an interactive data-vis. Visdown is open source and created using the excellent vega and vega-lite data visulisation library. You need to learn the grammar and principles of interactive graphics and you can then start your own journey in crafting interactive dashboard.
A version of this workshop will be presented at Strata London 2017 and Strata Singapore 2017
