SIX-WEEK COURSE – Metis Live Online: Data Visualization with D3.js (11.6)

November 6, 2017 @ 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm

NOTE: Please register for this course via the link below. Thank you! 

Data Visualization with D3.js Overview

This course is about data visualization and D3, the powerful JavaScript library frequently used to create data visualizations on the web.

D3 can be challenging to use, and much of the difficulty comes with learning syntax and understanding data joins (the most fundamental aspect of D3). On top of that, there are the headaches associated with the minutiae of charts: scales, axes, labels, annotations and the like.

But that extra effort becomes worth it when you realize that with D3, you’re in charge of every pixel. That power and control enables you to tell stories and communicate information interactively in ways that simply are not possible outside of a web browser.

How to Prepare

Some knowledge of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript recommended.
