This course will teach you everything you need to know to start building Data Visualizations in D3.js and communicating brilliantly in the world of Data Visualizations.
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.
This course brings together the worlds of web development and data visualization. You will be taken through instructor-led, hands-on coding exercises and will learn how to build powerful data visualizations. At the end of the course you will have built your own D3 visualizations from scratch using example datasets.
In addition, you will become familiar with the foundational concepts and methods of D3, such as data binding, scales, axes, transitions and motion, and advanced concepts such as layouts and geo-mapping. You will learn a repertoire of visualization techniques for making your data come to life.
