Building JS Resource Gantt Chart to Visualize Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Schedule

August 17th, 2021 by Shachee Swadia

A Mac screen with an interactive JavaScript Resource Gantt chart visualizing the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic schedule by venueSmart resource allocation is a must to achieve a high level of operational efficiency. Aiming to ensure it, project management professionals commonly rely on a special form of data visualization called a Resource Gantt chart. Creating graphics like this may seem daunting at first sight. But I am here to show you an easy way to build Resource Gantt charts with JS using a compelling, topical example.

Resource Gantt charts, also known as simply Resource charts, consist of bars oriented along the horizontal axis. Each bar visualizes a resource used by an activity, with the length representing the duration while that resource is occupied by that activity. The left and right edges of the bars display the start and end times. The resources, or event labels, are listed on the left. The dates and times are shown in the header.

Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games are just around the corner. So, I decided to visualize their sports program by venue. Follow along with this stepwise tutorial and you will learn how to create a cool JavaScript Resource Gantt chart visualizing the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic schedule!

Connecting a MySQL Database to a JS Chart Using PHP

August 4th, 2020 by Wayde Herman

Connecting MySQL Database to JS Chart Using PHPWhen using a charting library like AnyChart, which makes visualizing data so quick and easy, often the most challenging step for beginners is loading data. I think this is largely a result of the fact that while the ways we output the data are quite similar, the input data is commonly very different. The data may differ in many ways including the number of features in the dataset, what type these features may be, the format of the data, and how the data is stored. It is this final issue which we will be addressing today.

There is a lot of coverage in the documentation of using a data object declared within the code as well as importing your data from a file using AnyChart’s data loader. But what about importing the data from an SQL database? This is an easily done but often misunderstood approach to handling and loading data for data visualizations.

Unfortunately, it is not possible to use JavaScript to query a database because JavaScript is a client side solution and querying a database requires a server side approach due to security concerns — you just can’t store database login and password in your JavaScript code. There are many workarounds for this problem including approaches involving PHP, Ajax, Node.js, and many more. Today we will focus on using PHP to handle this task for us when our data is stored in MySQL.

In this tutorial, we will be covering how to query a MySQL database using PHP. We will describe the steps involved and reveal that it is in fact not challenging at all, just different!
