PLOTCON is the most visionary conference for data visualization in scientific computing, finance, business, and journalism. We bring together scientists, engineers, programmers, web developers, designers, business analysts, and journalists to disseminate best-practices in data visualization and accelerate the bleeding edge of technology.
PLOTCON is the one conference that brings programmers from today’s popular data science languages (Python, R, MATLAB, Julia) to the same table as the web developers who are increasingly fueling data visualization technology (D3.js, WebGL, stack.gl, React.js).
With O’Reilly Media and IBM as sponsors, PLOTCON is excited to return to NYC this fall for our 3rd conference including workshops.
PLOTCON NYC brings together R & Python data scientists, Web technologists who specialize in data visualization, and journalists and product managers who bring these creations to a mass audience. All of the technologies featured are open-source. The cross-pollination of people and fields, with the common theme of open source data viz, is what makes PLOTCON unique and exciting.
As a company, Plotly has the chance to see many standout data visualization initiatives among our customers, competitors, open source users, and Twitter community. PLOTCON is a chance to bring everyone together for a few days and highlight some of the projects that we think are truly outstanding but may have missed your radar.
Thanks to Web technology, dashboards and analytic apps that were once unimaginable to build yourself are now only a few days of work. Download a few open-source libraries, spin up a server, and BOOM – you have your own DIY DashboardTron 3000.
This DIY analytics trend is good for the world: It allows companies and individuals to build hyper-customized analytic apps for particular business or research problems. They’re also more fun to build than being the admin of a goliath piece of BI software.
PLOTCON brings together folks who are contributing to this “DIY” momentum in viz and analytics in their field. Here is a sampling of the projects that got us excited this year and we’re thrilled are coming to PLOTCON NYC:
