Nora recently completed her PhD in synthetic organometallic chemistry in which she also got some exposure to photophysics (i.e., big data). It was during the latter that Nora was exposed to the data design and data analytics process and discovered that she really enjoyed the whole process. She decided to make a career move and now looks forward to learning what it means to be a true analyst from the best people (using the best tools) out there!
Apart from work, Nora loves creative cooking (even if it doesn’t always turn out successful), laughing at people who call people who call a ‘braai’ a BBQ (yes, she’s proudly South African) and will always enjoy doing things outdoors!
My thoughts on some key points of The Data School for DS8
A blog about creating a Tableau dashboard in which any number of sheets can be exchanged using a parameter. This technique is ideal when dealing with large amount of data and limited space.
Understanding how to use the Alteryx Cross-Tab tool during #DashboardWeek at The Data School
Tableau – creating filter dependent images which enables better user interactivity and explanation of a dashboard
Adding clear reference lines in Tableau to create padding around a graph which allows space for labels and a more orderly presentation of your data
It is often necessary to update graph headings, axis labels or other informative information depending on interactive filters and even when no filter is applied to data. In this blog I discuss how this can easily be achieved.
A step-by-step guide to create an interactive colour legend to act as a filter over a whole dashboard.
Having had the opportunity to get some Alteryx and Tableau experience, see what we did during week two of DS8 and what I did in my application makeover!
Before I even started applying for a position in DS8, I had a couple of questions as to what the company structure looks like and what happens behind the scenes. During the recruitment process some of the questions were answered, but it was only once we started that...
The very first day for DS8.
