  • D3 Jump Start for Beginners
  • Time: Tuesday @ 4:00pm | Room N-114

This introductory session discusses the open source JavaScript library D3, whose emphasis on web standards embraces the capabilities of modern browsers, combining powerful visualization components and a data-driven approach to DOM manipulation. Since D3 leverages HTML, JavaScript, CSS, and HTML5 Canvas, and also provides a layer of abstraction over SVG, you can create a remarkable range of data visualizations.

This beginner's session is primarily a code-oriented presentation, culminating in the final 10 minutes with techniques for rendering real-time 3D data visualisation, so be prepared to delve into D3 code samples, as well as some eye-candy code samples from a D3 open source project.

Attendees will also learn how to deploy D3-based Android apps to devices such as Google Glass, along with a github repo with several Google Glass applications. This session concludes with a book raffle of some of my books that have been published in 2013.
