About the Book

D3 is a powerful library for creating data visualizations for the web. With it, you can create compelling visual presentations of your data while writing relatively little code.

In combination with AngularJS, the two can be used to create highly sophiticated, dynamic and interactive data visualizations.

The book covers an introdution to D3, addressing its major concepts and features, as well as  how to integrate D3 with AngularJS to make resuable, configurable, and dynamic visualizations. An emphasis is placed on screenshots and live code examples linked to from within the text.

But don't just take our word for it. Have a look at some of the examples the authors have created utilizing the combination of D3 and AngularJS.
