Join us Tuesday, March 7th to hear from Shirley Wu, creator of the amazing project, An Interactive Visualization of Every Line inHamilton and Metis Data Visualization with D3.js instructor.
Her project (re-tweeted and praised by Lin-Manuel Miranda himself!) is a visual analysis of the relationships between main characters and the recurring phrases they're associated with. The analysis is done via a custom filter tool of every line in the musical, and it was a labor of equal parts blood, sweat, tears, and love. In this talk, Shirley will go through the labor that went into the project, the mistakes that were made, and the insights that were found.
Food and drinks will be served!
6:30 - 7:00 -- Guests Arrive, Enjoy Food & Drinks
7:00 - 7:30 -- Shirley Presents
7:30 - 8:00 -- Q&A + Networking
