Beautiful Science of Data Visualization

Go see Carlos’ original tweet

I had a great time keynoting at the Crunch Conference in Budapest last week. What a great city and what a thriving tech scene!

My keynote was the Beautiful Science of Data Visualization: my favourite subject! The original content was developed by Jeff Petiross. My version has evolved from his, but they’re essentially covering the same content.

I was really impressed by Carlos’ sketchnotes. Too often, sketchnoting doesn’t actually capture info in a way I want to read it. However, Carlos creates sketchnotes which are amazing summaries. Go check out the rest of his stuff!

Someone else who does amazing sketchnotes is Catherine Madden.
