Antwerp – FREE – Data Visualization Workshop with Nadieh Bremer

Data Visualization Workshop with Nadieh Bremer
Be one of 30 chosen ones to work with Data Visualization Designer Nadieh Bremer.

CFO Services’ Data4S offers you an 8 hour workshop with one of the world’s brightest Data Visualization Artists.

Nadieh graduated as an astronomer at the universities of Leiden and Berkeley, to become a Data Scientist and Analytics consultant, eventually discovering her true passion: visualizing data in an effective, understandable & aesthetic way.

With so many tools available to visualize data, it’s easy to get stuck in thinking about chart types, always just going for that bar or line chart, without truly thinking about effectiveness. In this workshop, Nadieh will teach you how you can take a more creative and practical approach to data visualization design. Your horizon will broaden on the types of charts that are out there in the wild, but you will learn a lot more.

WHAT YOU’LL LEARN:

  • What are the steps in the data visualization process
  • How to come up with ideas and concepts to visualize
  • How to apply a more creative approach to making memorable yet functional and user-friendly data visualizations
  • How to think of approaches to go beyond the default even within the environment of a tool
  • How to design with code and connect your design decisions with meaningful data early on

WHEN AND WHERE:

  • Friday, September 8, from 9 am to 6 pm
  • KAS (Kunst aan de Stroom), Wandeldijk 1-32, 2050 Antwerpen

Based on the motivation candidates provide, we will make a selection of 30 people that can attend the workshop, free of charge. Data4S’s expert practice leader Toon Borré and CFO directors Walter Deprins and Alexander Van Caeneghem will do the selection.
