An earlier draft of this book was titled Data Visualization For All and designed to accompany a free online edX course by the same name at Trinity College. Two co-instructors for this edX course contributed valuable ideas and co-created videos: Stacy Lam, Trinity Class of 2019, and David Tatem, Instructional Technologist at Trinity College. Veronica X. Armendariz, Trinity Class of 2016, also made valuable contributions to an earlier version of the book while she was a Teaching Assistant for the DataViz internship seminar. Videos for the edX course were produced with Trinity College Information Technology staff and friends: Angie Wolf, Sean Donnelly, Ron Perkins, Samuel Oyebefun, Phil Duffy, and Christopher Brown. Funding for students who worked on the earlier draft was generously provided by the Community Learning Initiative and Information Technology Services at Trinity College in Hartford, Connecticut.

Thanks to many individuals and organizations for generously making time to help us learn many of the skills that we teach in this book: Alvin Chang and Andrew Ba Tran, who tutored and shared their Leaflet map templates while at The Connecticut Mirror; Patrick Murray-John, formerly at the Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media, who clued us into being code-curious, and many others at The Humanities and Technology Camp (THATCamp) conference series…

We appreciate everyone who provided feedback to improve this book, especially Amelia Blevins, our developmental editor at O’Reilly, and technical reviewers Carl Allchin,…
