Please note this course doesn’t cover updates since 2022Why a course by Jamie Fry?I have 10 years experience with tableau in the workplace. I’ve watched it grow from simple drag and drop tool into a extremely powerful visualisation software, from a Private company to an IPO. I am not a full time udemy instructor, which i believe is a strength. What i will teach you i use everyday in my workplace, for all different manner of clients across the globe. My technical teaching of this tool comes with real workplace Do’s and Don’ts, teaching you will not get from full time instructors that have been out of the workplace for a number of years. I teach tableau in classrooms face to face and via video conferencing, and years of this experience has led to this streamlined course. Please see my Bio for more information on my academic and professional background.The three stages of this course:Stage 1: The ApprenticeThe absolute fundamentals of tableau. Hit the ground running by learning all the basics, and how tableau manipulates your data. Even students with existing knowledge may learn something here.Stage 2: The MasterAdvance your data visualisation skills and learn to leverage your data. Students will learn the bulk of tableau here.Stage 3: The HeroPut all your skills learned to the test, and learn even more by completing a fully interactive workbook consisting of three linked dashboards. You will learn advanced dashboard skills here whilst bringing together all your knowledge.Bonus Lectures:A number of bonus lectures have been added to enhance your skills once you have completed the course. These include new chart types such as the “Waterfall” chart which cannot done by the “show me” tab in tableau. A full list of what technical skills you will Learn:Dashboard FunctionalityActions (Filter, Highlight and URL)Navigation between dashboards via actionsParameters: The FundamentalsParameters: Switching between measuresParameters: As a global filterDashboard Design: Make it look goodDashboard Design: Make it function wellReview & PublishingWhen to use storyboards vs dashboardsChart TypesText TablesHeat MapsHighlight TablesWaterfall Chart (BONUS)Symbol MapsFilled MapsPie ChartsBar ChartsStacked BarsSide by Side BarsDuel Axis ChartsTree MapsScatter PlotsArea ChartsBox and Whisker HistogramBulletBubblesControl ChartsWord cloud (BONUS)Tableau EssentialsConnecting to DataLevel of Detail (LOD)What “Good” data Looks likeDashboards and StoriesHow tableau pivots on your dataHierarchies Bins and DistributionsCalculated FieldsTable CalculationsTableau Calculations as functionsWindow calculationsData blending and joiningReference lines & bollinger bandsForecastTrend lineClusteringFilters, including the context filterGrouping & SetsUsing time series chartsFormatting (colours, fonts etc)Custom coloursCustom shapesWMS MappingPackaging workbooksNotable features which are NOT covered:Using APIs (web data connectors) Tableau Server (you should not need to buy courses on this, support is included in Tableaus fee when you buy the server).
