Start a Love Affair with D3 Data Visualization

D3.js is a super expressive, robust javascript library for creating animated and interactive data visualizations. This class will be a demo of some cool examples and a quasi-gentle walkthrough, easing through some of D3's more mind-bending learning stoppers.

D3.js is a super expressive, robust javascript library for creating animated and interactive data visualizations used widely by data scientists, journalists, designers, artists and corporate dashboard creators :-P This class will be a demo of some cool examples and a quasi-gentle walkthrough, easing through some of D3's more mind-bending learning stoppers.

If you want to follow along, just have your Chrome Browser available - we can do most of the work from the console & just about any text editor.

We'll be covering "how d3 thinks," some Chrome Dev Tool habits, SVG and the DOM, CSS selection, coordinate systems, JSON, and a pass at d3's confounding "enter, exit and update." And of course walking through a graph or two.
