Course Description

Tableau Desktop is one of the most popular data visualization platforms in the world, and a critical skill for analytics & BI professionals.

This course is a hands-on, project-based introduction to Tableau, designed to teach you how to connect, analyze and visualize raw data with real-world, practical case studies.

You'll be playing the role of a newly hired analyst for Maven Supplies, a cutting-edge office supply store looking to bring the sizzle back to copy paper and sticky notes. Your mission? Use Tableau Desktop to design and deliver an executive-level BI dashboard, from scratch!

We'll start with a quick intro to the Tableau platform and community, then connect and transform our first dataset. From there we'll explore sorting, filtering and grouping tools, build and format visuals, define custom calculations and parameters, and finally tie it all together with dynamic, interactive dashboards and stories.

If you're looking for a hands-on, practical guide to getting up and running with Tableau Desktop, this is the course for you.
