Learning data visualization (3 Part Series)
I started to learn data visualization. I will post my findings along the way. Let's start with resources for learning. This is not an exhaustive list, I chose items based on my intuition I didn't have time to read them (I just started).
I like the idea of "grammar", I hope they analyzed what are building blocks of visualization. My secret dream is to create a declarative language for visualization because stitching D3 visualization manually is so tedious.
He is an alive legend of visualization. I want to read all 4 his books.
There is his lecture, so you can get a better picture of what he is talking about in his books.
Those are books I chose for myself. It doesn't mean they are the best way to start this subject. A bigger list of the books is here.

Single Responsibility Principle (or SRP) is one of the most important concepts in software development. The main idea of this concept is: all pieces of software must have only a single responsibility.
