Data isn't very powerful if you don't have an audience to share it with. This is why d3.js (a JavaScript library) is the most important tool for building fully customizable, web-facing visualizations. D3 makes your data as accessible, interactive, and visually-driven as any webpage. Contrary to other tools or frameworks, d3 is not a microwavable meal but more of a cookbook and a kitchen full of ingredients.

Due to the expertise necessary to get started using d3, this is a two-part workshop with attendance limited to 15 participants. The first workshop will focus on learning the basics of d3 and what makes it so powerful, along with a hands-on portion building your first graph. Following off of this, the second workshop is primarily hands-on, where users will be expected to solve a difficult visualization problem using d3 (so attendance at both is strongly encouraged).

Do not register for this workshop unless you are able to attend BOTH parts.
2/20, 3-5pm
