Interactive Data for the Web by Sarah Bird (PyCon 2015 Must-See Talk: 3/6)

Part three of six in our PyCon 2015 Must-See Series, a weekly highlight of talks our staff enjoyed at PyCon.

Sarah Bird's talk made me excited to try the Bokeh tutorials. The Bokeh library has very approachable methods for creating data visualizations inside of Canvas elements all via Python. No javascript necessary. Who should see this talk? Python developers who want to add a beautiful data visualization to their websites without writing any javascript. Also, Django developers who would like to use QuerySets to create data visualizations should watch the entire video, and then rewind to minute 8:50 for instructions on how to use Django QuerySets with a couple of lines of code.

After the talk, I wanted to build my own data visualization map of the world with plot points for one of my current Caktus projects. I followed up with one of the friendly developers from Continuum Analytics to find out that you do not need to spin up a separate Bokeh server to get your data visualizations running via Bokeh.
