This introductory session discusses the open source JavaScript library D3, whose emphasis on web standards embraces the capabilities of modern browsers, combining powerful visualization components and a data-driven approach to DOM manipulation. In this session, D3 neophytes will see code samples and also learn how to deploy D3-based Android apps to devices such as Google Glass, along with a github repo with several Google Glass applications. Since D3 leverages HTML, JavaScript, CSS, and HTML5 Canvas and also provides a layer of abstraction over SVG, you can create a remarkable range of data visualizations. This beginner's session is primarily a code-oriented presentation, culminating in the final 10 minutes with techniques for rendering real-time 3D data visualisation, so be prepared to delve into D3 code from an upcoming D3 book (Mercury Learning/2013), as well as some eye-candy code samples from a D3 open source project. This session concludes with a book raffle of some of my books that have been published in 2013.
