One of the most important skills of a data scientist is properly communicating concepts. Perhaps, the best way is through visualizations. In this webinar, we will look at multiple types of visualizations and analyze why some work and others do not. This will include an explanation of when to use specific types of visualizations, what are important features to consider when creating them, and best practices in designing them.

Learn how to visualize information like a data scientist. No coding, statistical, machine learning, or visualization experience is required to attend.
