17:59 sivoais I'm sitting in a webcast about d3.js. These are the resources if any of you want to look over them <http://chimera.labs.oreilly.com/books/1234000002001/ch01.html>, <https://github.com/alignedleft/scattered-scatterplot>
17:59 sivoais I suppose you could sign up <http://www.oreillynet.com/pub/e/2952>
18:23 vicash in a nutshell what does D3.js do ?
18:27 sivoais it's a library for making visualisations with HTML+SVG+JS. Though there are charting libraries out there, d3.js is more of a library for making specialised charting libraries
18:27 sivoais <https://github.com/mbostock/d3/wiki/Gallery>
18:31 vicash cool. Another library that I have seen been used was Protovis but it didnt work in IE.. did the same SVG+JS stuff
18:33 sivoais d3.js is actually the successor of Protovis! Made by the same folks.
18:33 vicash awesome.
