I found it to be a great introduction to D3 and also very comprehensive. Kevin was a great teacher. I learned something every class and thought he did a great job walking us through complicated examples without losing us along the way
I've been trying to learn D3 for years and this was the only thing that worked!
One of the better programming classes I've taken--great balance between theories and details … Great examples to work on and good pacing for a diverse group!
It was an excellent mix of design techniques and hands-on coding. Kevin was a great instructor and provided great support during our in-class coding sessions. We covered a good set of foundational concepts.
I've been singing the praises of the course all over New York City, you may find more friendly faces that I've encouraged to take the class show up in the near future!
For an introductory course I think it covered a lot of ground. I was very satisfied with the topics covered- I really appreciated learning about stacked charts in the last class. That will help me a lot at work....I was initially skeptical about network graphs, but I just made my first one and used it in a presentation and it killed. So, I really feel like the current content covered and amount of time spent on stuff really hit the nail on the head for me.
Mollie [the Chicago Data Viz instructor] was really helpful and positive throughout the course. She provided a ton of resources for us to learn throughout the classes as well as after. I learned a lot both about data science as well as the practical application of D3.js
