Software training firm Infinite Skills Inc. last week released its "Learning to Visualize Data with D3.js Tutorial," a course designed for new and experienced developers, particularly those with a basic understanding of JavaScript, that teaches the essentials of using the D3.js library to create interactive data visualizations.

The D3.js library, or D3 for data-driven documents, is a JavaScript library that allows basic manipulation of a document object model (DOM) in HTML, creating the interactive graphical forms that run on web browsers. The library is a tool for data visualization in W3C compliance standards, and works with the most widely implemented languages, JavaScript, HTML5, and CSS3.

Infinite Skills' "Learning to Visualize Data with D3.js Tutorial," teaches the essentials of using the library through the creation of a visualization for a fictional business.

Course author Rafael Hernandez is a composer and a teacher as well as a developer. He is currently Interim Associate Dean and associate professor at California State University in East Bay. He is a professional developer with proficiencies in many languages including HTML, CSS, and JavaScript.

Following a review of JavaScript basics, Hernandez teaches how to create simple and complex bar charts and make them interactive by using D3 to add features such as a sort button, animation, and other mouse interactions

He then covers line and scatter-plot charts, explaining how to work with dates, format a linear time scale, as well as plot and stylize data, add data detail, and work with external data.

"D3 is most commonly used with data in order to create interactive data visualizations; these data visualizations appear all over the web. It's safe to say D3 is the dominant library for creating most of the graphics you interact with on the web," says Hernandez.

"Our primary focus is to look at the methods, functions and features of D3 that will get you started."
