First and foremost I would like to express my thanks to Mike Bostock, the driving force behind d3
His efforts are tireless and his altruism in making his work open and available to the masses is inspiring.
Nick Zhu has created a fantastic resource in (which is built on top of d3and crossfilter) and has been kind enough to provide good advice and permission to include some of his work in the section.Advice given by Christophe Viau has been a great help in getting me settled into the on-line world and his energy in managing and directing the D3 community is amazing.Mike Dewar () and Sebastian Gutierrez (dashingd3js.com) lead the pack for providing high quality reference material for learning D3. I am particularly grateful for the assistance given by Filiep Spyckerelle and Robin Bennett who selflessly donated their time and expertise in proofreading above and beyond the call of duty (where this document contains any errors, they are most certainly mine). Whether providing advice on Google Groups or Stack Overflow, contributing examples on org or just giving back in the form of time and effort to similar work. Out of the blue and in yet another example of the friendly and giving nature of people involved in this community I was contacted by Jose (‘Tactician Jenro’) who offered to use his skills to design a cover for the book. If you think that he could help you out with a project, you can get in touch with him at [email protected] @tacticianjenro.Lastly, I want to pay homage to Leanpub who have made the publishing of this document possible.D3’s trick is to let you set what appears on the screen.
A circle, a line, a point on a map, a graph, a bouncing ball, a gradient (and way, way more).
Once the data and the object are linked the possibilities are endless.
It won`t do everything for you in your quest to create the perfect visualization, but it does give you the ability to achieve that goal.
They offer an outstanding service for self-publishing and have made the task of providing and distributing content achievable.
If you’ve received a copy of this book from any location other than Leanpub then it’s possible that you haven’t got the latest version.
Go to https://leanpub.com/D3-Tips-and-Tricks and download the most recent version. If you find some value in the work, please consider contributing 99 cents when you download it so that Leanpub get something for hosting the book (and I’ll think of you fondly). D3 is all about helping you to take information and make it more accessible to others via a web browser. That means that it’s a tool that can be used in conjunction with other tools to get a job done.
