Course Overview
Hi, everyone. My name is Michael Van Sickle, and welcome to my course, Build Your First Data Visualization with vis.js. Data has never been so plentiful or easy to gather as it is today. There is so much data in the world; however, that deriving meaning from it is more challenging than ever. In this course, you'll learn to use graphics and charts to communicate meaning from your data set. Some of the major topics that we will cover include installing vis.js and creating simple 2D graphs, how to configure your visualizations to optimize their appearance and interactivity, and how to create 3D graphs, timelines, and networks. By the end of this course, you'll know how to use vis.js to add visualizations to your web applications. Before beginning the course, you should be familiar with the basics of HTML and JavaScript. A little CSS wouldn't hurt either. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn vis.js with the Build Your First Data Visualization with vis.js course at Pluralsight.
