About the author:
Simon Timms is a developer who works in the oil and gas industry in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. He has a BSc in Computing Science from the University of Alberta and a Master's from Athabasca University. He is interested in distributed systems, visualization, and the acquisition of ice cream. He has his own blog at blog.simontimms.com which elaborates diverse topics such as code contracts and cloud computing. He is also involved in the local .NET and JavaScript community and speaks frequently at conferences.

The increasing adoption of HTML5 opens up a new world of JavaScript powered visualizations. By harnessing the power of scalable vector graphics (SVGs), you can present even complex data to your users in an easy-to-understand format and improve the user experience by freeing users from the burden of tabular data.

Social Data Visualization with HTML5 and JavaScript will teach readers how to leverage HTML5 techniques through JavaScript to build visualizations. The book also helps to clear up how the often complicated OAuth protocol works to help readers unlock a universe of social media data from sites like Twitter, Facebook, and Google+.

The book provides readers with an introduction to creating an accessible view into the massive amounts of data available in social networks. Developers with some JavaScript experience and a desire to move past creating boring charts and tables will find this book a perfect fit.

This book is for developers who are excited about data and who want to share that excitement with others. Developers who are interested in the data which can be extracted from social networks will also find this book hugely beneficial.

The book contains the following chapters:

Chapter 1: Visualizing Data
Chapter 2: JavaScript and HTML5 for Visualizations
Chapter 3: OAuth
Chapter 4: JavaScript for Visualization
Chapter 5: Twitter
Chapter 6: Stack Overflow
Chapter 7: Facebook
Chapter 8: Google+
