Open source or closed? Homemade or store bought? It’s no matter which solution you prefer. Learn from our experience to make your data visualizations better, faster, cooler looking and more useful.

Our experience has roots in the the sad state of browser-based visualization tools we were forced to use about five years ago. When other libraries couldn’t cut it, we built our own. Since then, the ZingChart team has continued to evolve its offering. We have made visualizations in everything from Flash, VML, HTML5/Canvas, SVG, WebGL, images and anything else you might try to bend into a line or pie chart and learned many lessons along the way.

This talk will reveal:
* Hard trade-offs with which we contended
* Challenges we met and failed on
* Efforts we continue to make in an ongoing pursuit of creating an easy, yet flexible solution for big and little data sets. 

After this talk regardless of tool or library you may use, you'll come away with some useful stories to help guide you towards the better use of technology to build visualizations.
