Hi everyone. I am interested in data science and spefically in cybersecurity (my guess is it's kinda related to data science). What are the best skills to learn? [I am planning to take a class called "math of cryptography". Also not sure whether cryptography is related to data science?]

@jbkwizera FCC deployment is behind schedule largely because lack of human resources. Remember that all people are volunteering and a lot of the contributors are busy with other stuff. But I can confirm that the d3 visualization section is almost ready for production and looks good in my opinion.

@jbkwizera this is not the only area been (re)built. There is a bunch of them and I can guarantee that the content looks much more better, specially for the most advanced sections of the curriculum.

Stay connected.

@jbkwizera Meanwhile, try this for free during a limited time:
https://egghead.io/courses/build-interactive-javascript-charts-with-d3-v4

I just finished it. It goes fast, better if you have at least some previous knowledge, I found it more a complement to clarify some stuff than a course on its own. It is very basic too and sometimes confusing specially because it mix up ES5 and ES6 a bit. But it might work for you?

@jbkwizera the FCC d3 section will be entirely ES6 d3 v4.
