Anybody interested in data visualization should take a look at this tutorial on using JavaScript to work with a dataset of Hollywood movies. The tutorial purposefully sidesteps the use of D3.js, a popular and very useful JavaScript library used for data visualization, in order to better explore fundamental techniques, rather than library-specific tips and tricks.

The tutorial is split into three parts: Context, Build, and Closing. Between the three, there is a lot of information, both background and supplemental, and the step-by-step Build section is involved as well. If you're interested in honing your skills in data visualization or exploring new projects with JavaScript, check out the full tutorial and make use of your data.
