Frank Bowers came to Hack Reactor after 26 years as a Software Engineer to facilitate a transition from building user interfaces on the desktop to web development. Specifically, Bowers has a keen interest in data visualization, and embarked on a side project while working on our pre-course curriculum to develop his skills in this area. His project, Bay Area Stats, uses D3 to display comprehensive data on salary, housing prices and racial demographics in San Francisco and the surrounding area in a highly intuitive format.
Recent grad (and current developer at Levr) Jon Sadka built an interactive data visualization of Uber prices in New York, San Francisco and Los Angeles. The project, which he started at Hack Reactor, and polished in his free time after he’d completed the program, allows users to see patterns and isolated events in the popular ride-sharing service’s prices.
