We have a super special lineup in June for our meetup with two of the awesome presenters in town for the 9th annual Eyeo Festival. A local gem. The Festival brings together a rich intersection of people doing fascinating things with technology. Artists, data designers, creative coders, AI explorers, storytellers, researchers, technology & platform developers all cross paths and share inspiration at Eyeo. If you have never been to EYEO then definitely try to attend this year: eyeofestival.com. In addition to our two special presenters Eyeo will feature talks from data viz leaders including Nathan Yau (www.Flowingdata.com) and Moritz Stefaner (http://truth-and-beauty.net/).
