VIDEO lecture: First steps in scientific data visualisation using d3.js - by Drew Conway

Mike Dewar (Data Scientist,, presents a talk on getting started with data driven design in Javascript to the New York Open Statistical Programming Meetup on Jan. 12, 2012. Mike Bostock's d3 javascript library has lately taken the internet by storm, being the engine underlying a very beautiful set of visualisations ( Because of this, many have investigated d3.js as a potential addition to their current visualisation stack, only to fall over one of some common hurdles. This talk will demonstrate how to clear these first few hurdles, including:
- how to create and serve nice data objects
- how to use chrome's console to inspect and play with your visualisation,
- how d3 interacts with the document object model,
- how to draw arbitrary SVG objects,
- how to use d3.layout to relieve you of a few common graph-vis tasks.

The talk will be useful to those who are curious about using d3.js and wants to get started making interactive and dynamic statistical visualisations. You can download the slides (all written with d3.js) from Mike Dewar's Github:
