For anyone working on learning R I found this guys site and it looks pretty good. It's looks like it's video in case you don't like reading http://varianceexplained.org/RData/

Right now I am going through R for Data Science. Here is my github that’s tracking my progress. I am on chapter 1, but it’s a fun chapter (visualization). You can fork the repo and have the progress for yourself. I work through all the exercises.

@evaristoc Was this made with D3? https://archervisualization.herokuapp.com

I'm on my phone so I can't check the page source, but it looks like D3 or something built on top of it

@GoldbergData It seems to have some d3.js. The html is pure js but when you check the page request in the Google Console there are some requested scripts named d3.

I don't present until tomorrow, but seeing who is at the conference today is firing off all my imposter syndrome alerts and it's making me so nauseous :disappointed:

@becausealice2 we are all imposters. That comes with the sisyphean territory of technology! You can do this! Just prepare with what’s given to you and that’s all that’s important. I’m not sure the parameters of how your speak was setup, but I’m sure you were invited with reason. So just exercise on that reason. As long as you have prepared given your background and you’re humble, people will be happy. The latter is more important than the former. To much surprise, people lack just as knowledge as you in some cases, or at some point they did. So everyone will be able to relate. Anyway, that’s my rant. Cheering for you. @becausealice2
@evaristoc I stumbled upon an interview of her. She definitely used d3. This makes me want to learn d3. Is it difficult to pick up?

OH! PERFECT! An opportunity for validation, I'm presenting on D3. It's difficulty depends on where you're starting with respect to JavaScript and visualization principals
I have a bit of time left that I can still leech wifi at Starbucks before I have to get back to the wifiless venue
If you want to get a start ASAP I can recommend some resources since my own write up is still in progress
Otherwise if you can wait for me to get my laptop on wifi I can give better explanations

@becausealice2 I’ll wait for better explanation. No rush. Up to you. 😊. My JS is nonexistent. But I have a little background in C++, Python. Lately, I’ve been focusing on R. My visualization principles are the strongest of the 4. Hopefully that helps.

@QuincyLarson sounds good. I’ll be on the lookout. When I get some more visualizations I’ll post here.
@QuincyLarson have a great weekend
