==Half Day Afternoon==
=== Data Visualization Hackfest ===
* Description: Want to hack/design/plan/document on a team of people who enjoy learning by creating? Interested in data visualization? Well, this hackfest is for you. Not familiar with the concept of a hackfest? See Roy Tennant's [http://www.libraryjournal.com/article/CA332564.html "Where Librarians Go To Hack"] and the page for the [http://access2010.lib.umanitoba.ca/node/3.html Access 2010 Hackfest]. We propose a half-day hackfest with a focus on visualization library data -- think stuff like library catalog data, access/circulation statistics, etc. Here's how it works, roughly:
- we'll (you'll!) do lightning tutorials for some data visualization tools, toolkits (R? d3js? ?), datasets.
