NYC Data Science Academy is offering Tableau Beginner: a five week course that will introduce you to the wonderful wold of Tableau Visualization
Why Tableau is popular
Tableau Desktop is based on breakthrough technology from Stanford University that lets you drag & drop to analyze data. You can connect to data in a few clicks, then visualize and create interactive dashboards with a few more.
We've done years of research to build a system that supports people's natural ability to think visually. Shift fluidly between views, following your natural train of thought. You're not stuck in wizards or bogged down writing scripts. You just create beautiful, rich data visualizations.
It's so easy to use that any Excel user can learn it. Get more results for less effort. And it's 10 -100x faster than existing solutions.
Project Demo Day and Certificates
From the rudimentary building blocks of programming basics, to data manipulation and use of advanced drawing packages, the course ends with a demonstration of a project of your choice on Project Demo Day. On Demo Day you will access and analyze real data, utilizing the tools and skillsets taught to you throughout the course. After the successful completion of the course, you will qualify for one of three certificates: Extraordinary Standing pass, Honorable Graduation pass, and Active Participation pass.
Certificates are awarded according to your understanding, skill, and participation.
