The Bloomberg Charts product is used by over 150,000 financial professionals worldwide to make financial decisions. Our next-generation Charts unlock market data and give our clients unprecedented advantages. Today's Charts product spans a wide gamut of functionality, from visualizing data on the screen to real-time data alerting to historical trend analysis and much more.

The code base spans a number of technologies, including native libraries written in C++ using Windows GDI and OpenGL, as well as libraries written in TypeScript using HTML5 Canvas and SVG. The toolkit built by the Visualization team gives our users the ability to explore and manipulate data visually and is developed using an expressive visualization grammar that allows developers to describe very customizable graphs which are tailored to the data being displayed. The goal of the team is to develop highly performant, highly interactive visualization libraries that can be deployed to multiple platforms, providing a rich, consistent charting experience for our users.
