Many organizations are turning to Data Visualization to communicate insights about data. D3 is an award-winning data-visualization library that has gained considerable adoption amongst 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 of D3’s steep learning curve easier. We’ll look at examples to illustrate how to load, clean, and wrangle data to produce visualizations.

All Attendees need a laptop with Chrome browser installed, a text editor and Python (2.7+ or 3.x) installed on their Path. Data sets will be provided. Awareness of basic HTML, CSS, JavaScript and a web browser works will be helpful.
