The amount of data that is being gathered in the world is only growing. And since humans are visual beings we need to see the data to understand patterns, trends and outliers. It’s no wonder then that we’re only seeing a rise in the number of data visualizations used on the web these days.
Thankfully for Nadieh, making data visual is one of the things she likes doing the most. And during this talk Nadieh will show you how to create a unique, effective (& even beautiful) chart using d3.js, which has become the main “tool” for doing (interactive) data visualization online. Starting from an empty white browser window she’ll code & take you through all the nuts and bolts that go into creating a chart with d3, and how, with a little bit of out-of-the-box thinking you can use SVG in the weirdest ways to get what you had envisioned.
