Bring your data to life with elegant and intelligent visualizations with the D3 JavaScript library.

We will build on D3.js basics by exploring more complex chart forms, covering functions for fetching and manipulating data, and introducing transitions and interaction. We will write working code together and break down how some of our favorite examples of D3 charts work.
