Far from being the enemy, data can be a designer’s best friend. So much so that it just might be the backbone of the next evolution of web design.

Now it’s time to figure out what performs best.
In this session you’ll learn not just the fundamental concepts of this ‘new web design’, but how you can get started with data-driven design using free tools that are available right now.
