Session Details

Bring your Big Data to life using JavaScript and a browser using D3.js

Half-Day Workshop

In this session, we will see how to use JavaScript frameworks to bring your big data sets to life in the browser. We’ll first walk through the very basics of chart creation using D3, then using a dataset of meteorite strikes on the earth, we will build data visualizations and dashboards to track the meteorite strikes. We will use HTML, CSS, SVG, D3.js and DC.js to build the dashboard. 

We will then move into using the Cross Filter JavaScript library, to add cross-chart interactivity and let the users explore the data in ways that we may not have anticipated. Lastly, we will use the latest version of D3.js (V4) and build even more complex visualizations and interactions. Just bring a laptop with a Chrome browser to participate. All of the technology will be presented using open source frameworks with strong community support.
