  • Chart.js file
  • Chart.min.js file (minimized version, available in the resource section in a ZIP-file)

For this course I will be using the minimized version. It is fully optimized for speed and requires the least amount of kb to download. This is important if your future readers want to see your chart. It always needs to be quick.

In the resource section I placed a downloadable minimized version. However, I do understand that perhaps you want to download the latest version. In that case visit the official list. Link is included in the resource section.

Instructor Biography

Nicky Wong, Data Analyst, Market Researcher, Data Visualizer!

Nicky Wong is an expert in translating data into market opportunities. Data is his passion, Excel, Databases and Big Data are truly wonderful topics. As an absolute data lover and he is always looking for ways to analyze it. It started with stock market facts and now quickly turned to everything that is unique and different.

However, all the information have one primairy goal and that is "How to use this information to gain a competitive advantage". As a Market Researcher with it roots in Marketing Nicky understands that knowledge is power. Whatever you do make sure you use data at your advantage.

=====================================================================

My vision of Data and the future

=====================================================================

Why Data visualization matters!

I truly belief that Big Data is giving us all a new obstacle to overcome! Information overload is a serious challenge and with Big Data it only multiplies the issue. If you are a data miner you will know that much data has no meaning if you cannot connect any meaningful dots.

Large chunks of data, reports and tables are not effective. It is impressive to get a huge database but it is demotivating for others to read data. The biggest data trend is increasing this issue! Big Data = Information Overload x 10.

From (Digital) Information Age to the (Digital) Understanding Age

A data analyst can analyze data but the most important skill is Data Visualization! These so called "data visualizers" will develop a new skill gathering meaningful information and present it in a very understandable and effective way.

The issue is not anymore the data but the way to give meaning and communicating meaning to others. The person who can do that will have a huge advantage in the so ever growing Big Data world.

Big Data is here! Data Visualizer is on it`s way! In all of my courses I use techniques to create understandable data and present it in an impactful manner.
