built for Harvard University’s Strategic Data Project’s 2020 Winter Workshop
Welcome to Data Dozen! My name is Erin Waldron and I’m delighted to be joining the SDP Fellows’ 2020 Winter Workshop. As you look through all the sessions, here’s a bit of information to help you decide if this workshop is right for you.
With its intuitive interface, malleable charts, and engaging output, Tableau has taken the data world by storm. If you’ve never seen a Tableau dashboard in action, check out one of the examples below. Each were built with the software’s completely free version, Tableau Public, which we’ll use during the workshop.
These hands-on workshops are designed to kickstart your Tableau skill set in just two hours. With an emphasis on Tableau’s key functionalities and practical applications, we’ll progress from basic charts to dynamic dashboards that incorporate interactive filters and design theory. By the end of the workshops, here’s what you’ll be able to do:
We will spend nearly all our time together building visualizations in Tableau. By the time you leave, you’ll have created three interactive dashboards from scratch, complete with intriguing tooltips and dynamic filters.
With good data visualizations, form should always follow function. We’ll discuss which types of charts work best for which types of data, and point out how to avoid common visualization missteps along the way.
With your newly minted skill set, you’ll be ready to dive into your own data when you return to your organization. If you work with public data sources, all the better! You can continue to create visualizations with Tableau Public for free!
If these workshops sound like the right session for you, there are just three things to do before you arrive. Don’t worry. They’ll only take a few minutes.
