Objective

You'd imagine using Canvas / SVG to visualizations for web - In this session I will code up a pseudo 3D visualization using pure HTML DOM ( by that, I mean no SVG ) and JavaScript. In 30 mins.

Description

Simplifying a Data Visualization problem by applying an artificial constraint of not using Canvas or SVG. Explores the power of Simple JavaScript and Basic HTML DOM to build a data visualization that will beat you into believing that it was done using Canvas / SVG. This is not a demo - It is a full fledged code jam, and this will be built ground up in 30 mins.

Requirements

Programming knowledge, Basic JavaScript knowledge, Interest and exposure to 3D and perspective math, A heart to sit and watch someone code.
