I'm Ryan Best, and I'm a Data Visualization Specialist. I'm excited about using technology and design to make data visual, beautiful, and intuitive — allowing our data to help us tell stories, understand complex information, and make informed decisions. I'm a self-taught coder in JS, HTML/CSS, Node, Python, Ruby and other technologies. I particularly love using d3. Currently a Data Visualization Developer at The Associated Press. Formerly FiveThirtyEight, Bloomberg Graphics and Parsons.
