Build Data Visualizations from the Ground Up

Learn how to build unique and interactive visualizations from scratch

Data visualization on your terms

D3 is the most flexible library for creating data visualizations. It’s in a class of its own. If you want to understand the D3 library, and build awesome data visualizations, this course is for you. It’s a concise and comprehensive guide to learning D3.

If you are just getting started I have lessons on the basics (HTML/JS/CSS/SVG and Design Principles) to help you build a solid foundation.

If you already know D3, this course will help you level up your game. There are techniques for making your visualizations performant, responsive, reusable, and interactive.

If you know enough to copy and paste examples, but not enough to create visualizations from scratch, you’ll get a lot out of this course.
