Overview: This two day intensive course covers the practical skills needed to explore, analyze, and present data using Tableau as your data visualization tool. We will work on understanding a data set using filters, hierarchies, and parameters; transforming it using calculations and functions; and analyzing it using basic descriptive and statistical methods. By the end of the course students with limited programming and statistical knowledge will be able to analyze a data set and create interactive visualizations and dashboards to tell a compelling story.
