February BayPIGgies meeting: Thursday, February 23, 2012: Data
Visualization with Pyprocessing
Speaker: Simeon Franklin

Abstract:
I aim to briefly cover the concept of data visualisations with a
couple of inspiring examples, describe the popular data visualization
tool "Processing" and introduce pyprocessing, a port of the Processing
drawing API to Python, by way of a couple of example programs I've
written. I'll share the lessons I've learned so far in creating data
visualizations and discuss some drawbacks/workarounds specific to
pyprocessing.

Simeon Franklin:
I am a long time software developer, a long time Baypiggy, and
recently became a full-time Python instructor for Marakana. I like to
fool around with Python in my spare time :)
