About this workshop

This workshop covers the basics of how to use Tableau when your data is complicated. In addition to making stunning visuals, Tableau also has native capabilities that allow it to merge, clean and connect to multiple data sources that make it ideal as a visual analytics platform for organizations that have challenging analytics hurdles.

Moreso than a class about how to visualize data, this workshop covers how to use Tableau to manage your data so that you can do your best analysis. The class covers the operations inside Tableau that allow you to clean and manage your data, and how to build data management pipelines using Tableau Prep. By the end of this class you will understand how to take illegible, complicated data and effortlessly transform it into an efficient data analysis pipeline. The goal of this course is to allow you to go beyond being a data visualization expert and to become a well rounded data analytics professional.

Takeaways

  • The different ways you can join different sources of data and when it's appropriate to use each one
  • The basics of Tableau's scripting language so you can modify your data and create custom variables
  • How to shape data that isn't formatted correctly so it can be used for analysis
  • How to use Tableau Prep to create data management pipelines that automate and simplify the data management process
  • How to work with and shape survey data in Tableau Prep and connect it to Tableau Desktop for visualization

Prereqs & Preparation

  • A working copy of Tableau Desktop (Tableau Public is acceptable, but won't work as well on all of the examples)
  • Completion of the Tableau 101 class offered at General Assembly or previous experience using Tableau
  • A working copy of Tableau Prep
