Picture this in your mind’s eye: a designer who focuses on data visualization presents at Fluxible. What might that look like? Would there be examples of different kinds of visualizations? Perhaps there would be customized visualizations prepared just for Fluxible? As it turns out you don’t need to just visualize this, because Corey Ouellette will speak at Fluxible this year and we’ll all find out what such a presentation looks like!
Corey is a Data Experience Developer at Thomson Reuters Labs. The Waterloo Region Lab is located at Communitech with the goal of delivering new products and services to Thomson Reuters through data science and data visualization. Through the use of design thinking and lean methodology, the team collaborates with customers, attempting to use big data to solve big problems.
As a Data Experience Developer, Corey’s goal is to tell the story of the data. Much in the same way that one should never undertake a software project without a UX designer, data projects should never be delivered without data visualization. To bring the data to life, Corey leverages the skillsets of a designer, a web developer, and a data engineer.
Prior to Thomson Reuters Labs, Corey taught Internet Marketing at Conestoga College and worked as a web design and web development consultant at PMG Intelligence. Beyond that he also helped launch and provide the growth strategy for one of Canada’s largest online research panels, Qbord.
In his spare time, Corey enjoys woodworking, fishing, tinkering with technology, and surprising people by starting conversations in Mandarin. You might even find him helping Fierce Founders with their startups!
Stay tuned for details of Corey’s session at Fluxible. Then make sure to say nǐ hǎo to him!
