Beyond the bar graph: Creative Visualization with D3.js

Joanne Cheng ยท Barcelona Future JS

Turning set of numbers into a simple graph can instantly tell us a story about data, but there are times when a standard graph isn't enough. Sometimes we need to search for untradtional and creative ways to visualize our data to express our story. In this talk, we'll explore less common and unique ways of visualizing data sets on the web using D3.js, a flexible way to manipulate DOM elements using data. We'll discuss the reasoning behind the graphics we create, and talk about the benefits and pitfalls of working with D3.js from design and technical viewpoints.
