  • Speaker: Tara Walker of Tableau Software
  • Date/Time: Thursday, Mar. 5 at 3:30pm
  • Location: M101
  • Audio file: No audio file available.

Learn how to use Tableau to dive deeper into your data and ask powerful questions. We’ll be starting with a “messy” dataset and learn how to explore trends that would normally be difficult to see without further analysis and calculations. 

To achieve this, we’ll be using:

•Data Clean-up

•Calculated Fields

•Table Calculations

•Basic Statistics – regression, histogram, box and whisker plots

Some experience with Tableau Public is recommended. Taking one of the earlier Tableau sessions should suffice.Laptops will be provided.  This is a free training, however you must be registered for the CAR Conference to attend this class.  Limited seats are available.  

This class is full.  There may be a few seats available on-site. If you are interested, please arrive a few minutes before the class begins and the instructors will let you know how many seats may be available.
