Escher - democratizing beautiful visualizations
Submitted by Shashi Gowda (@g0wda) on Friday, 12 June 2015
I aim to introduce the audience to Escher.jl - a new tool for web-based interactive visualizations wholly programmable in a single, data-friendly, fast, lanugage - Julia. Hopefully, the pleasant ergonomics of the library will encourage data scientists to create more explorable, beautiful, and insightful presentations of data, and also create user interfaces without an army of front-end developers.
I am Shashi, I can be found at https://github.com/shashi and https://twitter.com/g0wda. I build user interface tools for the Julia community. Of late, I have been working on Escher, on which my talk is going to be about.
