I have a passion for knowledge and I realise that part of the responsibility of gathering knowledge is being able to advance the state of the human condition in some way. My aims using D3 and in writing this book were to play with software, achieve a personal goal and try something new for fun. It also helps that I think graphs and the visual representation of data rock in serious ways. I don't have a formal coding background and I didn't learn JavaScript and then how to use D3. I learnt a little bit of JavaScript as a result of using D3, so the way I explain things is focussed on trying to impart that understanding in a simple but functional way. I'm totally in awe of the Open Source community that has made this type of work possible.
