What is data visualization? A simple answer might be something like the graphic representation of data. But to get a better understanding of what practitioners of data visualization do, let’s start with the term data. By data, I mean raw, unorganized facts and numbers. Practitioners of data visualization take raw, hard to grasp data and turn that data into information by providing context and a purpose.
If you’re a frequent user of websites and mobile applications, you’re already familiar with design patterns, whether you’re aware of it or not. Design patterns are visual strategies for solving common usability problems. Design patterns keep cognitive load to a minimum by making interfaces feel intuitive. When I say cognitive load, I mean the mental effort involved in solving a problem or making a decision.

Recently started the Treehouse Front End Web Development Techdegree and it's by far one of the best things I've ever done.— Sheldon George (@sheldonjg) September 2, 2019
Day 18 of #100daysofcode. SO ready for the JS unit in the #treehouse FEWD Techdegree. I feel like JS, HTML, and CSS represent the three virtues in the Triforce. Now that I'm getting into JS... I'm feeling balanced ⚖️⚔️!— JoJo (@jowebdev2020) April 28, 2020
The @treehouse #techdegree gets you a much more in-depth experience, access to the Slack channel, peer-review, & building a (graded) portfolio of projects, PERFECT if you're a first-timer looking to get momentum to (as in my and @shilvia_88's case) make a career change. 🙂🏢👩💻— Ryan Whitney (@spaceman_ryan) February 14, 2020
