“ The D3 class was a great intro to the library. After finishing the class I can create simple data visualizations (bar, line, scatter, chloropleth, etc) and know some more advanced concepts (brushing, reusable charts). I also know enough about how the library works to continue learning on my own. I’d recommend coming in with some JavaScript knowledge as that will help you grasp the concepts quicker. Adam is a knowledgeable teacher who is responsive to his students needs. He will always pause his demos to answer student questions, and does a good job mixing lecture and application. Vivian is passionate about her students learning and career outcomes, and is always soliciting feedback from students to improve classes. An example is the videos she records so students can review in-class content. I’d recommend this D3 class to anyone who wants to learn the fundamentals. ”

I took the Introductory R five week class offered in Winter 2013. It was a great learning experience. The class time alternated between presentation and practice which was extremely valuable because allowed time to practice and digest the material. Scott presented the topics gradually and in a logical order. It was also a great resource to have Vivian available to answer questions during the class and in the weeks between classes. It was a very generous amount of resources provided. Thanks.
