The Book of Dash (No Starch Press)
Monday, 14 November 2022

Subtitled "Build Dashboards with Python and Plotly", this book offers a swift and practical introduction to building interactive data visualization apps.  Adam Schroeder, Christian Mayer and Ann Marie Ward show how to use the Python Dash library to create analytic dashboards that present data in effective, usable, elegant ways in just a few lines of code.

<ASIN:1718502222>

The book covers the basic format of a Dash app in a Twitter analysis dashboard that tracks numbers of likes over time. Readers then build up skills through three more sophisticated projects. The first compares world data in three areas: volume of internet usage, percentage of parliament seats held by women, and CO2 emissions; the second is a financial portfolio dashboard that models your investments; and the third visualizes machine learning algorithms.
