D3 in a reactive world

  • Event: 2019 CAR Conference
  • Speakers: Jon McClure of POLITICO; Beatrice Jin of POLITICO
  • Date/Time: Saturday, Mar. 9 at 9:00am
  • Location: Copper Cove - conference level
  • Audio file: No audio file available.

In this session, we’ll introduce you to how we bridge the gap between visualization libraries like D3 and the latest component frameworks in JavaScript. We’ll show you how mixing the two can become a powerful way to build reusable chart components that will shortcut your dev time and extend the impact of your work. Students will get a reusable chart template they can take home. 

This session is good for: people with some background in D3.
