On this episode, we talk with Amelia Wattenberger, a frontend & UX developer at Parse.ly about data visualization aka dataviz.
We discuss the origins of dataviz, and how it can be used to tell a narrative with the immediacy and visceral connection that can be difficult to do with other mediums.
We discuss Amelia’s personal approach to dataviz, and discuss the d3.js library at length. d3.js is a broad library of modules that you can use as a dataviz construction kit, and we discuss how to get starting doing just that!
