Open Data Durban Meetup: Travis Frisinger and Chris Fraser

3rd December 2015 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

We have two speakers for our final meetup of the year, Travis Frisinger and Chris Fraser:

Travis Frisinger, Team lead at Chillisoft.

Travis is a team lead at Chillisoft and recently built the National Open Data Portal for the Department of Public Services and Administration. Travis is on the Open Data Durban steering committee and we are super proud to have him around 🙂

Trav will be sharing his experience building the portal (at breakneck speed) with us.

and

Chris Fraser, Software Team Lead at Derivco

Chris is a Chemical Engineer on paper, but has always had a strong compulsion to dismantle everything to see how it works and the myriad components and maze of green tracks held me in awe, and is  now striving to become a programming ninja. Recently he’s been building a robotic arm with our friends at theMakerspace, which is pretty amazing.

Chris will be talking about data representation and presentation, in other words, how to visualise data in a way that suits the data, and tells a story without words.

There will be drinks and light snacks provided as always!

It’s our last meetup of the year, and we are really keen to build up our communty – 2016 holds big things for Open Data Durban!

See you there!
