I found the class to be very informative. The assignments on creating charts and graphs for large data sets were practical and helped me understand the concepts taught in the course.

Excellent introduction to data visualization. The lectures are interesting and high quality. I used D3.js to try different approaches, which was a bit time consuming but interesting.
