Visualization with Tableau 
Wednesday, November 2, 12-1pm in NQ 1255
This bootcamp is hosted by MSI student Josh Gardner. We’ll cover the process of loading, analyzing, and visualizing data in Tableau, introducing the Tableau interface and how to connect it to data, with guidance and suggestions on preparing high-impact visualizations and dashboards with Tableau. Following this are topics that might be of special interest to Data Divers, including dealing with different data types/formats, summarizing data within Tableau, filtering, using categorical data, and replicating the same visualization/dashboard for multiple datasets. There will be sample data to get everyone started, but participants should also feel free to bring their own data and explore that if they prefer. For download instructions, visit Installing Tableau.
