d3.js Tutorials: How to Perform Magic in a Browser in One Day

Published on: January 26, 2014, by | Category: Programming, Web Design

I was recently working on a project which required me to create dynamic graphs for a custom admin panel. I needed something cross-platform compatible, interactive, professional looking and  easy to learn. My research showed the best solution for this purpose is d3 – Data-Driven Documents.

D3.js is an open source JavaScript library which uses HTML, SVG and CSS to display multiple types of data visualizations in a browser.

I am amazed with the capabilities of d3 and I decided to put together a list of resources which helped me learn this library. This may be helpful for you as well, since there are many d3 resources online but deciding which one to chose can be overwhelming.
