Woah… how did I end up learning d3.js? This semester I signed up for the Advanced Data Visualization Special Topics course, with little knowledge of what I was getting myself into. My infographics professor had highly recommended the new course with the visiting professor. Like always when I am about to make a tough decision, I come back to this one thought, “Will I regret NOT doing it?”
She is a visiting professor and I am a senior next year, I may not get a chance to take a course like this again. Looking back, I made a very wise decision. As I learn about d3, I realize how new the tool actually is. Most of the resources we find on the D3 library comes from the creator Mike Bostock himself. I get a chance to learn something that not a whole lot of people get a chance to learn (today)!
No matter where I am going in my career or my life after college, I will never pass up a chance to learn something that I find interesting. 🙂 However, I really wish I can get better at this soon. Even though the semester is almost over, I still don’t think I have a strong grasp at what I am doing. I guess I have to try harder.
