            There is so much to like about D3js. It's Javascript, SVG, interactive, it's flexible, fairly well documented...definitely one of the most powerful tools in my webdev toolbox. On top of all that, I occasionally use D3 to produce my version of art.

            D3.js is an amazing library for doing visualizations, charts/graphs, etc. We are experimenting with it for metric visualizations, marketing graphs/charts, and basically anywhere we could use this amazing library.
