Plotly allows you to create beautiful, interactive graphs and data visualizations in your browser. Use the same JavaScript library the New York Times uses (d3.js) and embed your graphs in blogs, websites, & articles. But you don't need to code to make beautiful, interactive graphs; while you can use Python, R, and more to make graphs, you can also make graphs with Excel, Google Drive, and by copying and pasting data into a grid. It's collaborative, free, and entirely online. In this talk, we'll talk about graphing best practices and look at how The Washington Post, Wired, The Guardian and others use Plotly graphs in their work.
