Using Open Source to Solve an Identity Crisis

A presentation at Write/Speak/Code in in New York, NY, USA by Nishat Anjum

As products of more than one society, immigrants often struggle to find their cultural footing. Add in recent genocide, religious tensions, plus life as a minority and it’s a toss up on how you define yourself. In this talk, I’ll be explaining the technical details behind using D3.js to track the Bengali diaspora as well as how this project has been bridging the gap between all of my identities. Who I am as a Bengali American, who I am as a software engineer, and who I am as a woman of color.
