Attendees will need laptops in order to follow along. Scott will have the code examples posted online (using O’Reilly Atlas):
The preferred option is for attendees to download the code examples in advance from:
They should also have the following software ready to use:
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:
