SC2 An Introduction to D3.Js: From Scattered to Scatterplot Thu, Feb 15, 8:00 AM - 5:30 PM
Salon B
Instructor(s): Scott Murray, O’Reilly Media
Interested in coding data visualizations on the web, but don't know where to start? This workshop will have you transforming data into visual images in no time at all, starting from scratch and building an interactive scatterplot by the end of the session. We'll use d3.js, the web's most powerful library for data visualization, to load data and translate values into SVG elements — drawing lines, points, and scaled axes to label our data. We’ll learn how to use motion and visual transitions, and introduce simple interactivity to make our charts more explorable.

All methods and examples will be up-to-date for the current version of D3 (4.x as of this writing).
