We gave the community access to our data. Here’s the result
We judged the entries according to three main criteria:
- Effort: how much time and care you put into your visualization.
- Usefulness: how insightful or useful your work is.
- Originality: for works that show out-of-the-box thinking or are just plain fun!
So without further ado, here are the three contest winners who won a very exclusive State of JS x DotJS t-shirt!
State of JS: Galactic Edition by Gregory King
Greg’s State of JS: Galactic Edition ticks all three boxes: it clearly took some effort to come up with that concept and add some visual polish; it’s useful as it surfaces some information that wasn’t even available in the survey (when each library was first released); and it’s certainly creative!
What I particularly like about this visualization is that it uses movement speed as a meaningful indicator to communicate the amount of interest in a technology.
I don’t think I’ve ever seen a data visualization make use of this dimension, and it certainly opens up a lot of possibilities that are unique to digital media!
