[Presentation] Dabbling with Data Visualisation
In this presentation I will demonstrate simple techniques for generating data visualisations: using tools (including MS Excel and Google Spreadsheets), drawing packages (including Illustrator and Inkscape) and software libraries (including d3.js and timeline.js).

The presentation will also highlight some of the skills required for discovering and reshaping data sources.
