All skills are acquired through coding, reflecting, and re-solving programming exercises individually or as a group.

Juice Analytics


We're the creators of Juicebox, a new kind of tool for visualizing data. Organizations are so caught up in the race to capture and analyze data that they're rushing past the most critical component – the end user. The best data in the world is useless if the everyday decision maker can't understand it and interact with it. So we said, "What if you stopped and took a more thoughtful approach to data visualization?"

1. You would think conversation, not presentation. instead of just presenting data, you would create more ways for people to interact with, socialize, and act on the data.

2. You would create a more designful experience for the end user. The end product would feel a lot less like a spreadsheet or report – and a lot more like a social media platform.

3. And you would deliver a complete solution, not a build-it-yourself kit. This means delivering a customized, fully configured data product – not a sophisticated demo and a box of parts.
