#3 - Sushi with Nadieh Bremer

ScriptCast No. 3 is here! Sebastian and I met Nadieh Bremer during our trip to Beyond Tellerrand in Düsseldorf. We took Nadieh out for sushi and had a chat about her life, work, and career in data visualisation. So join us and listen how Nadieh started out as an astronomer and became a JavaScript-savvy data-viz-ard. Also, find out how Dragonball Z can be used for interactive and engaging visualizations, and why the hexagon is the best shape of them all (https://scriptconf.org approves). With Nadieh being a remarkable source of knowledge, she provides us with tons of books and resources for you to start your own journey:
