Graph Visualization Libraries

Network visualization is something I thoroughly enjoy, and I am fooled by the ease with which one can manipulate graphs in an application like Gephi. I would like to learn how to take more control of the process for myself — and, with luck, learn more about network theory in the process. For that, I need some graph visualization libraries, and over on Medium Elise Devaux has that covered: List of Graph Visualization Libraries.

Retiring Python

[James Hague is retiring Python][] as his preferred language for teaching programming. His reasoning is that so many of his students would like to be able to *show* friends and family the results of their efforts but that getting graphical results from Python is, well, circuitous quite often. The language with which he now wants to start beginners is Javascript.

File this under *hmmmm*.
