D3 stands for Data-Driven Documents
Mike Bostock wrote D3.js based on his work during his Ph.D. studies at the Stanford Visualization Group. Mike worked at the The New York Times for a while and is now independently working on D3.js.

- D3.js lets you to build the data visualization framework
- D3.js focuses on binding data to DOM elements.

A transition is a selection-like interface for animating changes to the DOM. Instead of applying changes instantaneously, transitions smoothly interpolate the DOM from its current state to the desired target state over a given duration.

d3.select("body") .transition() .style("background-color", "red");
d3.interpolateObject(a,b) command is used to interpolate two objects in d3.js
