With the exponential growth of data in the past few years alone, there has been an increasing demand and importance for Tableau in data science.
This event will cover an introduction and basic overview of Tableau, how it’s applied in industry, and a workshop led by Tableau’s Student Ambassador. Attendees will have the opportunity to follow along with the instructor in creating dashboards and charts, and using datasets in Tableau. No previous experience or background in data science is required.
Attendees will need to download and install Tableau before the event. Students can download Tableau for free (up to 1 year) following the instructions provided in the Tableau Student Guide.
For people not affiliated with universities, they may also install for free (up to 15 days) – please download Tableau only 3-4 days before the event to make sure you have access on the day of the event.
