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 uses 6 different hands on exercises that give you practice joining, blending, grouping and cleaning more than a dozen different types of data to make sure you are equipped to use Tableau for even the most challenging professional problems. 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
  • How to connect Tableau to live data sources
  • Issues and tradeoffs you face when using different types of data
  • The basics of Tableau's scripting language so you can modify your data to make it suitable for analysis
  • How to perform analysis on multiple data sources when it can't be joined together
  • Using groups, pivots and hierarchies to make your data more organized and meaningful

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
