This learning path is divided into three modules. The first module will equip you with the key techniques required to overcome contemporary data visualization challenges.
In the second module, Social Data Visualization with HTML5 and JavaScript, it teaches you how to leverage HTML5 techniques through JavaScript to build visualizations.
In third module, Learning d3.js Data Visualization, will lead you to D3, which has emerged as one of the leading platforms to develop beautiful, interactive visualizations over the web.
By the end of this course, you will have unlocked the mystery behind successful data visualizations.
