Training Online Data Visualisation (D3.js)If you've been looking at the amazing online data visualisations from places like the New York Times or The Pudding and thinking: "How do they do that?!", this training is for you! The web is an amazing medium for visualising data, allowing users to interact with the data and explore it for themselves.
ContentWe'll dive right into creating charts, and learn new concepts and design theory as we go. You'll leave the training excited and equipped to create your own custom data visualisations, as well as a process to apply to future projects. Some of the topics we'll cover are:
- October 1: We get everyone set up and go over the basics of SVG. Homework is to create a simple scatter plot of some data.
- October 8: We dive into d3 and show how the scatter plot could be created using d3. Homework is to create a chart of your own choosing.
- October 15: We talk about some more complex ways to use d3, and go over parts of the homework that participants struggled with.
