Many options exist when choosing a framework to build a custom data explorer on top of your company’s stack. With a brief nod to out-of-the-box business intelligence solutions, the presenters will offer an overview of the creative coding frameworks that lend themselves to data visualization on and across web browsers and native apps written for Mac OS X, iOS, Windows, and Android. Evaluation of the strengths and weaknesses of libraries such as Processing, OpenFrameworks, Cinder, Polycode, Nodebox, d3.js, PhiloGL, Raphael.js, Protovis, and WebGL will be explored through visual examples and code. The audience should come away with a sense of what investments into education will return a high value product that serves unique design goals.
