Hello everyone! This is the first blog post concerning my new project — Data Dojo. This idea came out of my interest in data visualisation and how incredibly awesome it can be ☺ And yet it is still a big problem to do it right and be able to show a fascinating story hidden behind raw data.
In our times many people work with data on a day-to-day basis. Marketers, scientists, journalists and analysts have to understand their data and then present it to other people. It can be a real challenge. I think that it is a fascinating problem to solve — how to show your data in a way that people will understand and pay attention.
There are some great examples how data visualisation can change the way we see the real world around us. One of them is a TED talk by famous professor Hans Rosling where he debunks the myths about the so-called developing countries. Next two are great examples of beautiful data visualisations done by data artists David McCandless and Jer Thorp. Those talks were a huge inspiration for me and I encourage you to watch them.
I’ve just started and really need your feedback. Cold facts are startup’s best friend. Don’t be shy and send me a tweet or just comment here. ☺
