Data Visualization with D3.jsLive Online

This course is about data visualization and D3, the powerful JavaScript library frequently used to create data visualizations on the web. The skills you’ll learn in this course will give you the power and control to tell stories and communicate information interactively in ways that simply are not possible outside of a web browser. 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), in addition to the minutiae of charts. But that extra effort becomes worth it when you realize that with D3, you're in charge of every pixel.
