Course Abstract

D3.js has become the standard for creating custom interactive data visualizations for the web. This feature-rich open source javascript library allows you to create dynamic and extremely diverse experiences that can interact with users and any other element on a web page. For programmers familiar with Javascript, it is not hard to pick up and run with D3 very quickly. For those with limited javascript experience, it can be intimidating. This course will help anyone who has some javascript familiarity get comfortable creating rich, animated, interactive experiences with D3. If you have worked with jQuery, for instance, you can easily work with D3.
