Did you know that...? The most popular trends for meetups, even in SF, is not WEB DEVELOPMENT as it seemed to come out from the last surveys (including stackoverflow...) but DATA SCIENCE and ENTREPRENEURSHIP/BUSINESS.

So many branches and possibilities with Data Science ... :)
@evaristoc -- I know the idea of "validating" users for FCC certificates ...looking for the more tactful way of saying "fraud detection" (I think the terms used previously were less "heavy") would be something I'm curious about ... buuuut... I'm still playing around with a lot of technologies right now ... :)

@bitgrower the people in datascience are mathematicians and statisticians, not "i can do fook around with d3"

heh ... what made you think I thought differently, @jacobbogers ?
bitgrower

d3 is just about data viz anyway, which certainly provides some powerful presentation capabilities ... but it ain't math, as far as I know ...

...but as far as serious vs. "I can fool around with <name any number of software libraries" isn't something limited to fields like DS ... :) ...just like you can be a coder without knowing a heckuva lot of about computer science ... :)

@jacobbogers @bitgrower I would say the same: DS is not only about d3.js, actually... visualization is part of it. What would you like to do instead?

Hey hey everybody!

Please check out 3 images and vote which variant is easier to consume (understand with a short look): H1, H2, H3, H4


H1, H2 (horizontal grid)
BarChartsHorizontal_H1H2.jpg

H3, H4 (horizontal grid)
BarChartsHorizontal_H3H4.jpg

H3,H4 (vertical grid)
BarChartsHorizontal_H3H4_2.jpg


Don't think, just tell which one was the easiest to understand with the first quick look.
Grid:

  • horizontal grid
  • vertical grid

Style:

  • H1
  • H2
  • H3
  • H4

Thanks! :santa:

@evaristoc yeah, I also asked some people IRL, and everybody said H3, so I made new variants for test :)

Which variant is more easy to read (understand data)?
H5, H6, H7 (vertical grid)

@SamAI-Software: I would keep H3...
From these ones, H5

@SamAI-Software whenever you have time... can you check the breaks for age at issue #41? I would say instead: "under 25", ...., "over 39". I think it is clearer...

@SamAI-Software I agree with @evaristoc - H3 and H5. Great work finding such a good looking solution!
