Learning to Create Visual Representations of Data

Learning to Create Visual Representations of Data


To start, I love the https://www.reddit.com/r/dataisbeautiful/ thread. I’d really like to be able and think of something random like in this Medium article - https://medium.com/@ThatShelbs/heartbreak-monday-blues-and-pytrends-f1a398591a79 - and create the data visualization for it.

I have a couple of questions about this:

  • I’m not done with the full FCC curriculum yet - on the front end libraries projects. I’m assuming I should finish this before starting to learn what I need to do this?

  • I see people using Python, R, Tableau, etc… and I’m wondering what language/tools you’d suggest starting with?


I would suggest the tools you mentioned above. Not sure if anyone else has any better suggestions?
