About This Workshop

Fascinated by data visualization but don't have any experience beyond charts in Excel or Powerpoint? Supercharge your data and your career with this action packed workshop on Tableau.

This class aims to take students with no prior experience and make them functional Tableau practitioners by the end of the workshop. It provides a comprehensive introduction to the visual techniques that are employed when describing, analyzing, and communicating data in a business setting. We’ll start by explaining the role of data visualization in a business setting, and then dive into the specifics of how Tableau produces its visuals. We will cover the basic principles of data visualization, look at how data viz can be used to convey a message, and walk through the process of creating complex, dynamic visualizations.

Come and learn the basics, and get the skills you need to own that next staff meeting, marketing presentation, or business pitch!
