An Introduction to Data Visualization & Processing ( Programming Language)

Submitted Apr 23, 2012

To excite the audience into the world of Data Visualization through a gateway called Processing ( Programming Language ).


The talk is going to be split into two parts (of 15-20 mins each).

First part covers, Data & Visualization. Where I would try to answer ( with examples ) questions such as: Is Data just numbers? What is the Purpose of a Visualization? Does context play a role in choosing the type of visualization?

Second part covers, a basic introduction to a programming language called Processing. Where, the available methods, libraries and export options like Android, Web ( Applet/Processing.js), etc are explained. I would like to conclude my talk with an example/case study of a visualization that I have done using Processing.

Last 5 odd mins is retained for Q&A and discussion.


Enthusiasm and basic programming knowledge.
