The most important part of the initiative is to build community around data visualisation, we hope to achieve this in a number of ways.
We’re working on developing a community communication framework, expanding and diversifying communication channels.
We’ve started with a TUoS google group which can be joined through a TUoS google account. We have also added slack channel for more informal communication and chat. Remember to say hello in our #welcome channel.
Events: We’ll be hosting a variety of events including talks & symposia, workshops, vis-coding clubs and data visualisation hackathons!
But just to give an idea, here's a selection of workshops in the pipeline:
~ Data visualisation in R
~ R, htmlwidgets & Shiny
~ Dataviz using vegalite

We are constantly looking for new ideas and suggestions for events, workshops or tutorials. Feel free to get in touch with us through the google group or slack team with any suggestions. We will also be putting together more formal contributing guidance should you wish to contribute to our online resources directly through our GitHub repository including blog posts and tutorials.
