Maps are made of lots of data, and d3 is a useful tool for attaching data to a webpage. That said, you don't always need d3 to make a good map, and when you do need it, you often want to use it with something like leaflet.js and mapbox.com.
Presenters Jue Yang and Derek Lieu have a mind to walk you through their recent project, which maps hundreds of thousands of rows of data across several years and geographical boundaries. Along the way, you'll come to understand the different ways to make maps on the internet, and why you might use one set of technology over another. Anyone with an interest in mapping large amounts of data, in a scalable way, and the accompanying implementation details, will certainly have a great time.
