Creating an effective and beautiful data visualization from scratch

Data gathering is now a part of everyday life. And since humans are visual beings, we need to SEE the data to understand patterns, trends and outliers. So, it's no wonder that data visualizations are starting to pop-up everywhere and are the focus of this session. During her talk Nadieh will show you how to create a unique, effective and beautiful chart using d3.js, the main ‘tool’ for building (interactive) data visualizations online. Starting from an empty white browser window she'll code and take you through all the nuts and bolts that go into creating a d3-based visual. And, how with a little bit of out-of-the-box thinking you can use SVG in the weirdest ways to get what you envisioned.
