Big Data Introduction to D3


D3.js is a Javascript library primarily used to create interactive data visualizations in the browser.  Despite its growing popularity and warm community, getting started with D3 can be tricky.  This talk covers the basics of D3 and sheds light on some of its main conceptual hurdles. It concludes by discussing some applications of D3 to big data.

About the speaker:

Sam Selikoff is a self-taught full-stack web developer. Formerly a graduate student of economics and finance, he unexpectedly discovered a passion for programming while doing data work for a consulting firm. He is currently focusing on client-side MVC and data visualization.

      I've used Backbone and Ember. Naturally it depends on what you're building, but there are good ways to incorporate D3 into both. Ember's components in particular offer a nice way to do this. I gave a talk about it last Fall, here are some resources:http://www.samselikof...­
