About This Workshop

Time to get technical with your insights from Excel analytics and turn them into useful visualizations in Tableau.

This free, 2-hour workshop teaches you the psychology and importance of data visualization before diving into hands-on practice with dimensions, measures, and data types in Tableau. From there you’ll move on to chart types and dashboards. By the end of this workshop you’ll have a visualization to communicate the analysis you’ve completed.

Make sure to join us for next week where you’ll learn about SQL architecture, data types and client tools, then you’ll Access Data in SQL and practice writing queries with basic SQL syntax. We’ll see you there.


You’ll leave this workshop knowing:

  • The importance and psychology of data visualization.
  • Tableau’s primary chart types and how to create them
  • How to identify dimensions, measures, and major data types in Tableau.
  • How to build interactive filters and dashboards to better explore your data


  • This is an entry level workshop, so no prior knowledge is necessary.
  • Download and install Tableau Public. If you already have Tableau Desktop (professional version) through your workplace, you may use that instead.
  • If anything prevents you from following-along live, the recording will be shared after the series so you can review the content anytime.
  • Your mic and camera will be off for the duration of the workshop.
  • Interact with your instructor and fellow classmates through the Chat and Q&A
