At some point in your software development career, you may be called upon to produce a graph or a chart. Delivering on even a simple request can be remarkably complex. How much data is there and where does it live? What kind of chart should you use? Should the chart be rendered on a server or on the client? What kind of clients should you support, and what are the consequences of that choice? This course introduces every aspect of visualization, from story, to numbers, to architecture, to code.

Charting - 1A You can't visualize data without data. And you can't really talk about numeric data without just a little bit of math. Don't worry though, I'm not going to try to turn you into Statistician. A few basic concepts will take you a long way. In this module, I'll also be showing you some charts. For the moment I won't be showing you how those charts are created. That will come later. I will note, however, that because this is a course for Developers, most of these charts will be built using code, instead of an application like Excel or Tableau. And the source for all of these charts is included in the sample code for this course.
