Moving from Foundational to Advanced Visualizations

This article is written by Joshua N. Milligan , the author of Learning Tableau . You are now ready to set out on a journey of building advanced visualizations!

Adding and Editing Content in Your Web Pages

Visualization

Humans are visual creatures and have evolved to be able to quickly notice the meaning when information is presented in certain ways that cause the wiring in our brains to have the light bulb of insight turn on. This "aha" can often be performed very quickly, given the correct tools, instead of through tedious numerical analysis. Tools for data analysis, such as pandas, take advantage of being able to quickly and iteratively provide the user to take data, process it, and quickly visualize the meaning. Often, much of what you will do with pandas is massaging your data to be able to visualize it in one or more visual patterns, in an attempt to get to "aha" by simply glancing at the visual representation of the information. In this article by Michael Heydt , author of the book Learning pandas we will cover common patterns in visualizing data with pandas. It is not meant to be exhaustive in coverage. The goal is to give you the required knowledge to create beautiful data visualizations on pandas data quickly and with very few lines of code.

Managing Images

Cats, dogs and all sorts of memes, the Internet as we know it today is dominated by images. You can open almost any web page and you'll surely find images on the page. The more interactive our web browsing experience becomes, the more images we tend to use. So, it is tremendously important to ensure that the images we use are optimized and loaded as fast as possible. We should also make sure that we choose the correct image type. In this article by Dewald Els , author of the book  Responsive Design High Performance ,we will talk about, why image formats are important, conditional loading, visibility for DOM elements, specifying sizes, media queries, introducing sprite sheets, and caching.

Getting Ready with CoffeeScript

In this article by Mike Hatfield , author of the book, CoffeeScript Application Development Cookbook , we will see that JavaScript, though very successful, can be a difficult language to work with. JavaScript was designed by Brendan Eich in a mere 10 days in 1995 while working at Netscape. As a result, some might claim that JavaScript is not as well rounded as some other languages, a point well illustrated by Douglas Crockford in his book titled JavaScript: The Good Parts , O'Reilly Media . These pitfalls found in the JavaScript language led Jeremy Ashkenas to create CoffeeScript, a language that attempts to expose the good parts of JavaScript in a simple way. CoffeeScript compiles into JavaScript and helps us avoid the bad parts of JavaScript.
