This workshop will provide a beginner-friendly introduction to D3.js., a JavaScript library for manipulating documents based on data using HTML, SVG, and CSS. D3’s emphasis on web standards gives you the full capabilities of modern browsers without tying yourself to a proprietary framework, combining powerful visualization components and a data-driven approach to DOM manipulation.
