Introduction to Data Science: Interactive Data Visualozation with d3.js

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Connecting data to business value depends on the capacity of CEOs, managers, and project leaders to understand and trust data insights. The most robust solution to bring trust in data is to allow decision-makers to explore relevant data and correlations through interactive visualizations that accurately represent data. This tutorial teaches participants the theory and know-how to design and build interactive data visualizations.

In the tutorial, we will first look at case studies of visualizations that are great examples of data-driven narratives, including those created by the New York Times, Stamen Design in San Francisco, and independent developers. Building upon these examples, the tutorial will dive into the set of tools (frameworks, knobs, brushes, etc.) in the Javascript library D3.js, reviewing best practices for their use. Tutorial participants will be invited to work alongside the instructor in sketching out and improving a data visualization with some of these features, and will be provided resources for continued study.
