# Overview of Project: Polling Data
In this section we're going to explore how to use matplotlib to build a number of charts on top of our poll app database.
We'll learn to build line charts, bar charts, and pie charts. We'll also learn the fundamental building blocks of a matplotlib chart so that learning more will be easier!
