Our Data Visualization course focuses on the practical aspects of working with data. In our 6-week long course, we’ll cover the basics of storytelling and working with data in a creative, fun way. You’ll learn how to create interactive, engaging experiences using HTML, CSS, SVG and Javascript.

This course, aimed at beginners, will teach you how to work with data and choose the right visuals to represent it effectively. We’ll introduce the basics of the powerful D3.js library used to animate and add interactions to your charts and graphs. You’ll also learn how to pull data from the web using Ajax.
You don’t need to be a designer or experienced coder to join the course but a little knowledge of HTML and CSS will help.

What you'll get…

  • 10 projects over the course of 6 weeks, and you can take as long as you want to finish the course
  • Two lessons for 6 weeks, each 60-80 minutes long, released on Mondays and Wednesdays, to fit around your schedule
  • Homework to test your knowledge and expand your learning
  • Access to the SuperHi community on Slack and our super secret Facebook group
