Building Custom Data Visualizations using D3.js

Building data visualizations on the web opens the door to complex, interactive formats - let’s look at the basics of creating a chart using d3.js, the de facto javascript library.

Intro to Observable Notebooks

Observable is interactive notebook for data viz folks. Let's review it together to find which aspect of it would be beneficial to you...

  • A nice place to lear and try d3?
  • Collection of implemented visualizations where you can check the code and change it?
  • Personal portfolio?
  • Social network for data viz people?
  • Place where you can promote your work?
    I'm sure we will find something for you
