PYPTUG monthly meeting: Plotly, dash and company

Come join PYPTUG at out next monthly meeting (September 19th 2017) to learn more about the Python programming language, modules and tools. Python is the ideal language to learn if you've never programmed before, and at the other end, it is also a tool that no expert would do without. Monthly meetings are in addition to our project nights.


Meeting will start at 6:00pm.

Main Talk: "Plotly, dash and company"

by Francois Dion

Remake of W. Playfair's classic visualization (source: Plot.ly)


There are many visualization packages available out there, each best suited to specific scenarios. In the past several years, I've covered Matplotlib, Seaborn, Vincent, ggplot, 3d visualizations through matplotlib, D3.js and mpld3 and Bokeh. In this presentation we will cover plotly (for javascript, R and Python) and related packages and when it makes sense to use it.


Francois Dion is the founder and Chief Data Scientist of Dion Research LLC, specializing in analytics, data science, IoT and visualization. 

He is the author of several open source software, such as stemgraphic (www.stemgraphic.org), the founder of the Python user group for the Piedmont Triad of North Carolina (www.pyptug.org) and mentors various groups in Python, R and analytics at large. You might have run across his multiple part series on LinkedIn on data science books, including part V on Visualization.
