About This Class

No chart type generates more discussion than pie charts. Some people love them, some people have them. In this class we take a balanced approach, trying to show that, when designed with a purpose, their limited strengths can be useful to convey a simple message and provide an entry point for a more detailed discussion. The second part shows you how to make pie charts in Excel, Datawrapper, Flourish and PowerBI.
