Foreshadowing

Next week is all about d3. In case any of you want to jump ahead and look around the meadows you'll find yourself in next week, you can try starting with one of these two excellent tutorial sets:

Scott Murray's d3 Tutorials (This guy wrote the book on d3. Literally.)

Dashing d3 (Great set of tutorials by Sebastian Gutierrez)
