Learn how to create your very own rich and intuitive JavaScript data visualizations using jqPlot

From time to time programmers are given projects where they need to learn a new programming language or framework. Some set off to find resources to help them learn what they need.

I personally have been frustrated many times when the examples in these books feel too theoretical, or are based on project ideals that would not stand up in the real world.

The Problem

We are all flooded with data from social media, website analytics, and e-commerce conversions. Data visualization is the new, hip thing to do and that’s why your boss is asking you to compile mounds of data, and make it easy to analyze.

That’s where Learning jqPlot comes in. I walk you through compiling the data and presenting it in different ways, and give tips on the best ways to visualize different data sets.

About the Author

I’ve been working on the Internet since the 90s. I started off viewing source code and learning HTML and CSS. I learned classic ASP by reading Sam’s “Teach Yourself ASP in 21 Days,” and then learned PHP and Javascript. Most recently I learned Ruby on Rails and Node.js.

Since I typically learn by starting with a problem, I wrote the book for just that scenario. The book is framed around one large project that the reader and I are tasked with at a fictional electronics company. Each chapter builds on the knowledge we need and also looks at real-world project constraints any developer would encounter.
