What is Observable?

Observable HQ is a Javascript notebook tool that makes it easy to share executable Javascript code right in the browser. This greatly reduces the friction around introducing and educating people about tools or features. Observable is designed primarily as a data visualization tool, but I have found it to be helpful for explaining and demonstrating concepts and behaviors for web3 as well.

For the official introduction to Observable, check out the 5 minute introduction.

Why I like it

Easy to setup

First of all, there is nothing to download! This is a huge benefit when introducing developers to new technology. I can show off features and techniques for using new tech without requiring developers to have to download anything or set up an environment. This makes it easier to spark curiosity and inspire people to continue on their learning journey.
