Data By Design Table Talks: Powered by PechaKucha

  For years the term “Big Data” has buzzed on the lips of CEOs and executives and bounced off board room walls. Companies understand the opportunity their data represents to customize products and services to their customers, streamline operational efficiency, and unearth market insights that provide a competitive advantage. But knowing how best to apply data is one thing—telling a story through data in a way that illuminates is an art unto itself. CNN Money recently published an insightful piece on this subject. Author Olof Schybergson says, “It’s about turning information into meaningful insights people can use, giving data a human shape and a connection with the messy real world that we live in… Designers have it ingrained to focus on simplicity and bring a singular focus to delighting the end user—regardless of whether they are a business user or consumer. Designers know how to take complex or disparate information and make it tangible, understandable, and importantly, more human.” We’ll be tackling this with the experts for our May Table Talks: Data by Design. Joining us for lunch on Thursday, May 23 will be Datascope Analytics partner Aaron Wolf, designer Sharlene King, DataMade founder Derek Eder, Chicago Data Visualization Meetup organizer Josh Doyle, and Table XI COO Mark Rickmeier, each of whom will treat us to a PechaKucha-style presentation on the topic.

Developer Education Table Talks: Powered by PechaKucha

Software development is one of the fastest growing industries in the country, with the Bureau of Labor Statistics projecting a 30% increase in jobs by 2020, more than double the average growth rate for all occupations. We’ve certainly seen an explosion in Chicago’s tech scene over the past several years, and along with this goes the issue of education. Who is going to train this next wave of developers, and what are the best teaching tools? How can we use mentorship to promote continued learning and improvement internally, and ensure current devs stay on top of the latest technologies and innovations? How will we reach groups typically under-represented in the dev world, like lower income individuals, certain ethnic minorities, and women? At Table XI we’ve been thinking a lot about the role of education and mentorship in this community. On Thursday, June 13, for our June Table Talks: Developer Education, we’ll be hearing PechaKucha-style presentations from some of Chicago’s best: Ray Hightower, organizer of ChicagoRuby and WindyCityRails - @rayhightower Paul Pagel, CEO and Co-founder of 8th Light - @paulwpagel Vince Cabansag, Director of Operations at The Starter League - @vcabansag Michael D. Hall, Founder of UGtastic - @just3ws Mike Busch, Instructor at Dev Bootcamp - @mikelikesbikes Isaac Sanders, Table XI development intern and mentor at Dev Bootcamp - @isaacsanders Stay tuned for these presentations on this channel, and in the meantime follow along at #TableTalks.

Snowflakes and Avalanches

"Big data has a way of making us feel small." Saying that big sets of data aren't easy for humans to process is an understatement. With companies like Facebook processing 300 million photo uploads a day, how can anyone expect to derive anything useful from all this data? In today's Presentation of the Day, "Snowflakes and Avalanches" from Table XI's May Table Talks, human-centered designer Sharlene King speaks on the empathetic and logical methods she utilizes to derive useful knowledge from bafflingly large mountains of information.

The Importance of Being Empathetic

In "The Importance of Being Empathetic" from a special Technology for Social Good edition of Table XI's Table Talks, Bo emphasizes the need to focus on the end user, and how putting yourself in their shoes can dramatically improve your work.
