Getting Started with Three.js ## Introduction I have used Three.js for some of my experiments, and it does a really great job of abstracting away the headaches of getting going with 3D in the browser. With it you can create cameras, objects, lights, materials and more, and you have a choice of renderer, which means you can decide if you want your scene to be drawn using HTML 5’s canvas, WebGL or SVG. And since it’s open source you could even get involved with the project. But right now I’ll focus on what I’ve learned by playing with it as an engine, and talk you through some of the basics. For all the awesomeness of Three.js, there can be times where you might struggle. CodeDay Dallas Is this a "hackathon"? CodeDay is a place for people who are interested in learning something new and meeting new people. It is not focused on winning awards or getting jobs, so we do not call CodeDay a hackathon.
iVisDesigner iVisDesigner stands for Information Visualization Designer, which is a platform in which users can interactively create customized information visualization designs for a wide range of data structure. iVisDesigner was started around March 2013 as the undergraduate thesis project of Donghao Ren, its overall goal comes partially from the previous Visualization Assembly Line project, which allows users to freely create axis-based visualizations for multidimensional datasets, like scatterplots and parallel coordinates. In iVisDesigner, we employed a new approach.
