Getting data in a useful form can be a complicated and time-consuming process, often requiring specialized skills. Tableau Prep has customized visual experiences to make common yet complex tasks simple. We'll teach you how to:

  • *Connect to Excel files and other data
  • *Perform a pivot, aggregation, join, and union
  • *Group and replace values by pronunciation and common characters
  • *Export data into Tableau Public for visualization

Some experience with Tableau is recommended but not required. Attending one of the earlier Tableau sessions should suffice. Laptops will be provided. This is a free training, however you must be registered for the IRE Conference to attend this class.  Limited seats are available.  There may be a few seats available on-site.
