Course Overview
Welcome to Build Your First Data Visualization with CanvasJS. This is Martin Burger for Pluralsight. In this course, I'm going to introduce the CanvasJS Charting Library for JavaScript. CanvasJS is great at integrating data visualizations, or even whole dashboards into web apps or sites. Now, to get you ready for CanvasJS, I will show you how to set up a working environment, how to connect to a local server and data source, how to structure basic syntax, how to create the most common types of data visualizations, how to annotate and modify them, and I will also present multivariate charts. This course is actually meant to be a primer. It will give you an idea about how the tool works, what you can do with it, and how to best proceed to get a more advanced understanding. To fully benefit from this course, you should have some familiarity with JavaScript, HTML, CSS, and data visualization. Alright guys, I really hope you're going to use this course to fine tune your data visualization skills.
