Many organizations are turning to interactive data visualizations to communicate insights about data in order to connect data to business value. D3 is an award-winning data-visualization library that has gained considerable adoption among these organizations. It uses data to drive the creation and control of dynamic and interactive visualizations that range from simple charts to sophisticated animated data visualizations, general HTML layouts, and geographic projections.
This hands-on tutorial will allow attendees to master the D3 essentials to make the climb up D3’s steep learning curve easier. We’ll look at examples to illustrate how to create interactive data visualizations as well as best practices. Finally, there will be resources, examples, and exercises provided for continued study after the tutorial.
