Data Visualization To Me: messages from the dataviz community to everyone

In september 2019, I had the opportunity to talk about data visualization at a french data conference, Salon de la Data, in my town, Nantes. My session “La Data Visualization pour les Nouilles” introduced the concepts of data visualization through the stories, the studies and the eyes of well-known data visualization specialists.

We have an amazing community. My session is in a way about that community and it felt natural to let some of our most talented and generous people in our field explain in a few words what is data visualization to them.

Thank you so much to Allison Torban, Robert Crocker, Cole Nussbaumer Knaflic, RJ Andrews and Federica Fragapane to have answered my call! I felt very lucky to have their testimony, and you should too 🙂 let’s hear and learn from what they have to say.
