How to learn to develop Looker custom visualization efficiently?
« on: September 23, 2022, 06:55:32 AM »
I have been working with Looker for a while and one thing that bothers me the most is the multiple limits to its native-visualization (clustered stacked bar chart unavailable, sunburst chart with limited editing options...).

So, I figured that it is time to learn to develop visualization myself. However, I have very little to no experience handling JavaScript and visualization libraries, thus, my learning plan is as follow:

Learn JavaScript Basics (FreeCodeCamp I guess)
Learn D3.js
Adapt D3.js to Looker visualization API

My question is:

Is this plan logical ? If not, what is your suggestion ?
How long would it take if I put in 2 - 3 hours per day ? Assuming that I have a higher IQ than a monkey
