Last week Friday project consisted into creating a dashboard sketch on paper canvasses and to then replicate the work into Tableau.
Last Friday DS13 was assigned a project. In the time span of 2 hours (which became 4 afterwards), we had to re-create our application viz. It was also required to find a new dataset, preparing it with Alteryx or Tableau Prep, and adding it to the original Viz. In this post, I would like to describe how I used to clean up the data before joining DS and how this process can be streamlined using a tool such as Alteryx or Tableau Prep.
At the beginning of this week, Andy informed us that an upcoming session was composed of over 200 slides. Due to this all I was expecting was a long theoretical session, instead, Andy gave us some crayons and large paper canvasses.
Last Friday DS13 had the opportunity to watch DS12 client project presentation. In this post I will explain why I think this represent a very valuable learning tool.
The first Viz I’ve published on Tableau Public, Pokémon: A Guide to Beginners, was a great, and unexpected, success.
In this post, I would like to describe the first step of the Data School application process, focusing on the techniques I have used to build such a successful Viz, which guaranteed me the access to the next stage of the process.
