About the author

I work as a feedback mechanism for organizations and teams to help them understand what’s going on with their products and processes. I do this by collecting and organizing their data, visually exploring it, enriching it with other data and metrics, then presenting my findings using creative information design techniques. This leads to improved business performance and often sparks a data-driven culture throughout my clients organizations.

Course Overview
Hi everyone, this is Ben from bensullins. com, and welcome to my course, D3: The Big Picture. I've been a data geek for nearly 20 years now, working to extract meaning from heaps of data, and the best way I've found to do this is through engaging data visualizations. That's why I'm excited to walk you through the most expressive way to make data visualizations on the web with D3. Now D3 is an incredibly popular way to visualize data on the web as being used by many web apps you currently use, as well as data journalists and data scientists. In this course, we're going to learn what is D3 all about, how D3 works, all the concepts that make D3 so powerful, and we'll go through lots of fun examples to see the variety of ways that D3 is used throughout the web. By the end of this course you'll have a great understanding of what D3 is, why it's useful, and when you should use it. Now this is just a high-level course, so we won't be writing any code here, but that doesn't mean you won't leave with a good technical understanding of the platform. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn D3: The Big Picture, with this course at Pluralsight.
