Ollie studied Philosophy and then Natural Sciences at the University of Cambridge, before spending a couple of years in the wilderness as a professional singer. After sinking hours into Excel and SPSS trying to make his final research project look perfect, discovering the ease with which he could achieve this in Tableau was a thrilling moment. He instantly knew that this was where he wanted his career to go, and the Data School was the best place to make that happen.
Ollie splits his free time between going to the cinema, cooking and baking, playing football and singing in a number of choirs. He is also permanently available should anyone need an extra for a pub quiz.
At the end of this first week, we’ve encountered a lot of new information. I thought I would use this post as an opportunity to set some of it straight in my head, and in doing so look at differences between Tableau and Alteryx. I’ll focus on how the two tools combine data sources.
My first blog post – a bit about my background, my first impressions, and how to get in touch.
