Tableau is an incredibly powerful tool for helping people and organizations become more data-driven. Whether you are a student or data scientist, the analytics platform empowers you to manage data and create data visualizations to form actionable insights. Once you understand how to use it, you’ll be able to quickly perform vital business analysis that would take 3–5 times as long with other software. Start leveraging its capabilities to make data-driven decisions and tell compelling stories with data visualization.
By the end of this full-day Tableau bootcamp, complete beginners will be able to harness Tableau’s native powers to aggregate, filter, segment, and visualize data. Get hands-on practice with all of Tableau’s major charts, and showcase your new analytical techniques by building a functional, interactive dashboard.
