Yeah, we all use D3 by going to the gallery, finding the graph closest to what we want, and C&P’ing it. But what if what you want hasn’t been done before? Adam Janes walks us through the process of making your own D3 graph, unique like a snowflake. (Until it goes on the gallery and everyone bloody C&P’s it.)

  • Journalist, developer, community builder, newsletter creator and international man of mystery, Jason was one of the first South Africans to really grasp the importance of data in the newsroom and has remained one step ahead of the trends in the field all the way. Even Naked Data was conceived before email newsletters were cool again. But what does that tell you about the measure of the man? Nothing, that's what. He hides the superman CV behind a truly mild-mannered and overly modest persona and is best described as "one of the nicest guys in the business". When he's angry, it is righteously so, and his anger always wears velvet mittens. The true signs of his genius include the ability to create multilingual puns on demand (witness the alternative Naked Data strap "Putting the heita in to data") and the fact that he offered me a job.
