Instructor: Kaiser Fung, Founder of Principal Analytics Prep
Description: Everyone can start making better data graphics today. You don’t need complex tools, or learn new software, or study graphics design. Kaiser Fung, a well-known expert on data visualization, and the creative mind behind the popular data visualization blog, Junk Charts, will present 12 easy steps that will make your charts more effective. After 12 years of close reading, critique and reworking of thousands of data graphics on Junk Charts, Fung learned that most ineffective charts can be fixed using simple means. And yet, the chart designers time and again fail to notice these flaws. You can improve your own work immediately just by keeping an eye out for Kaiser’s 12 steps -- chart fixes that can be implemented easily, even on a basic charting program such as Excel. After the workshop, you will be able to make data graphics that deliver a powerful message more effectively. The 2.5-hour workshop will be interactive, with in-class exercises, and plenty of real-world examples. All major chart types will be covered, as will visualization of multivariate data sets. The workshop is suitable for anyone who makes charts. You should bring your laptop with Excel or your preferred visualization software installed. All materials can be implemented in Excel.
