DataTalks # 2: Data Visualization

    The second meeting of the DataTalks community was dedicated to data visualization - one of the most important and powerful tools in the hands of analysts. Indeed, the decisions and conclusions of the customer depend on how the results of the research work are presented. In addition, visualization helps to conduct preliminary data analysis and quickly find new relationships.
    Under the cut you will find recordings of speeches by representatives of the companies Wargaming, Ambitious Suits Consulting, Targetprocess, A2 Consulting and the Internet portal TUT.BY. Speakers shared their experience of visual and informative presentation of data.
    The meeting itself was traditionally held “under the tank,” in the main office of Game Stream LLC, the Minsk office of Wargaming development.
