Tom graduated from Aston University with a BSc in Business & Computing, and then worked as an account manager for an ERP reseller. When speaking to his various clients, he realised how important data was to their businesses which prompted his career change into the data world.
Having never had much technical exposure, during his degree or working experience, he realised that The Data School was the perfect opportunity to get the kickstart his career with in the data industry with the best possible training in Tableau & Alteryx. During his time here, he is hoping to get the skills and ability to create analysis on a wide range of topics. He is especially keen on sports analytics, in particular his favourite team football team, Liverpool.
Data files can come in lots of shapes, sizes, and formats. This is especially the case when working with numbers, as there are lots of ways to format a negative. Traditionally, in Excel, this is done by using a ‘-’, red text colour, and sometimes within brackets.
Today at The Data School, we were learning all things Tableau Server.
A guide to creating a parameter which will automatically change the colours of a bar graph depending on whether a target has been met or not.
Hello! I’m Tom and I’ve recently joined The Data School in DS14. I thought this would be a great time to reflect on my experiences from my first week and tell you a little bit about my first project on Friday.
