about the event

Ever wondered what would happen if we put amazing designers and phenomenal programmers together for a weekend to work on the best data APIs?  That’s right. Incredible interactive visualizations!

Welcome to data in sight: making the transparent visual, a hands-on data visualization competition held June 24th through 26th, 2011, at the Adobe Systems, Inc. offices in San Francisco’s SoMa District.
