D3 (data-driven documents) is one of the most acclaimed data-visualization libraries and has gained considerable adoption in its short lifespan. It is a very versatile framework, which can be used to create simple charts as well as sophisticated representations like network graphs or geographic projections, and which handles interactivity and animation well. But because of its unique features it also uses a specific syntax and concepts.
This tutorial will allow attendees to master the essential ideas of D3 and become fully operational.
The outline of the tutorial is:
Scott Murray is a code artist who writes software to create data visualizations and other interactive phenomena. His work incorporates elements of interaction design, systems design, and generative art. Scott is an assistant professor of design at the University of San Francisco, where he teaches data visualization and interaction design. He is a contributor to Processing and is the author of the forthcoming O’Reilly title Interactive Data Visualization for the Web.
I create interactive data visualizations. Prior to that, I have been in charge of storytelling with data and the visualization effort for OECD, and before that, I managed a videogames development studio. I hold an MBA from the University of Texas as Austin and a masters degree from EM Lyon.
