In this chapter, we will create our first bar chart using
D3.js and SVG; however, to get there, we will have to go through some basics. These basic concepts are very important because they will give you the freedom to create visualizations for almost everything that you have in your mind. The more of them you know and understand, the more crazy things you can do with D3.
Don't worry if you think that this definition is full of fancy buzzwords because in this section, we will walk through all of them. You will understand exactly what they mean and why this makes D3 and SVG a great combination to create visualizations.
