Interactive Data Visualization: Getting Started with D3.js - V5 free skillshare course

Free Skillshare course, D3.js has become the standard for creating custom interactive data visualizations for the web. This feature-rich open source javascript library allows you to create dynamic and extremely diverse experiences that can interact with users and any other element on a web page.
For programmers familiar with Javascript, it is not hard to pick up and run with D3 very quickly. For those with limited javascript experience, it can be intimidating. This course will help anyone who has some javascript familiarity get comfortable creating rich, animated, interactive experiences with D3. If you have worked with jQuery, for instance, you can easily work with D3.

Interactive Data Visualization: Getting Started with D3.js - V5 free skillshare course 

Your instructor, Bill Shander, is a self-taught programmer with over 25 years experience doing data visualization. He remembers how confusing and intimidating it can be to learn a new technical skill. This course uses simple language, not technical lingo, and walks through everything step by step, explaining every minute detail. Even if you don't know any javascript, you should be able to follow along with the lessons, even if it might be a little confusing at times. 
All of the code used in the videos are available for download under "Class Project" to help you follow along. Please note that you will need to be running a web server for most of this course as D3 cannot load data files via local paths. I recommend using a Bitnami MAMP stack or a similar local dev server - whatever is easiest for you to setup. 
This course has been updated to work with D3 V 5.
