Expanded Library

Google Charts By Example

by Paul O'Fallon

This course covers Google's Charting library, which allows developers to embed advanced charts in their web applications by leveraging a very straight-forward javascript API.

What you'll learn

In this course, we begin with a brief overview of key concepts. Next we iterate over several common chart types, including the pie chart, bar and column charts, line and area charts, and a combo chart. We then look at various sources of data, including server-side JSON and Google Spreadsheets. After exploring additional charts and advanced data table concepts, we wrap it all up by wiring together our own multi-chart dashboard from scratch.
