new bay area d3 meetup alert! in Oakland on 2/13 we are throwing a block party!

it's an idea I've had for a while to try a different event format. I plan to MC and "VJ" blocks that I find interesting as well as ones people attending are interested in. I imagine it will be a fun way to dive into a wide variety of tech & design inspirations


I built with the support of the community and to help create and find d3 examples.

I co-organize the SF Bay Area d3 meetup because d3 is hard to learn and misery loves company ;) it's also really fun to meet others doing and making cool things you never expected!

Twitter played a big part in developing and expanding my craft. interested to see how a more focused community does!
