Today, I'm excited to share my new personal website: the new and improved connorrothschild.com! The site is built with SvelteKit (@sveltejs @SvelteSociety) and GSAP (@GreenSock), and I'm pretty proud of it 🙂 Check it out!

Fire new project from @yizhe_ang 👇 smooth transitions, clean interactions, and great use of visuals (& made with Svelte @SvelteSociety)
Happy to share my new interactive article / explorable on K-Means Clustering, which has also been accepted to @VISxAI at @ieeevis! k-means-explorable.vercel.ap… Built with #svelte and #d3js. #MachineLearning #DataScience #Datavisualization #dataviz #scicomm

I've been really interested in @CL_Rothschild's use of @sveltejs to declaratively build SVGs. Svelte's transitions map especially well to .enter() and .exit() in d3. Very keen to build more charts in Svelte and combine them with #quartopub analysis! connorrothschild.com/post/sv…

I appreciate the #rstats community's dedication to reinforcing my procrastination at mastering other programming languages by stealing their best bits for R, like this bit of clever larceny from @CL_Rothschild: connorrothschild.com/post/au…

Another big project launched recently, The Myanmar Conflict Map for @IISS_org The brief: using reports from 14,000+ violent events (all since 2020), how do we make sense of the evolving civil war and its seemingly indistinct violence? how I built it + design choices 👇

Can’t speak highly enough of this recent piece by @sam_learner and @peggyhollinger for the Financial Times! A new go-to example of how visual storytelling can be used to demystify complex topics 🛰 ig.ft.com/space-debris/

Too often I heard people saying d3 is intimidating and complex. Using Svelte + d3 removes a lot of the complexity, and @CL_Rothschild made an excellent blog post to explain why. Welcome to the new-new way, where your code just makes sense!
New blog post on using Svelte + D3 to write code that *just makes sense* when creating data visualizations (including a funky burger example 🍔) connorrothschild.com/post/sv…

You know when @puddingviz works with music data the project is going to be 🔥 You can really tell how much work went into collecting data that otherwise doesn't exist. 100% worth your time 👇

I just read 5 svelte + d3 articles and this one by @CL_Rothschild was my favorite!! I love seeing the simple example in vanilla js, then d3, then svelte+d3 👏🏻 connorrothschild.com/post/sv…

Proud of Connor and Amanda at the Moksha Data Studio team for putting together this budget explainer. Thanks to @ACLUTx for their support.
