[Async]: Getting Intimate with D3.js

27 June 2013 from 7:15pm to 9:30pm

Full info: http://asyncjs.com/d3-intimate/

D3.js is fast becoming the standard tool for producing HTML5 data visualisations. It is an incredibly powerful framework that allows nearly limitless flexibility in manipulating the visual appearance and structure of a web page.

Peter Passaro will introduce you to the primary source material for ideas behind D3: Leland Wilkinson’s book The Grammar of Graphics. He'll introduce a few great tools for getting up to speed with D3, including Vega, a json-based tool for describing visualisations simply for D3, Tributary a rapid prototyping environment for building D3 visualisations, as well as some of the D3 based charting frameworks that are now available.

UPDATE: DO YOU WANT TO LEARN D3 FROM SCRATCH?
There will be a one-day workshop to learn how to build data visualisations with D3.js, on 3rd July (repeated on 25 Sept) at the Lab for the Recently Possible. For details and tickets, see L4RP.com/d3/
