Data Science 101 Series: Communicate Better with Data Visualization

Do you want to learn how to create engaging data dashboards? Start your Data Science Journey with WiSER’s Data Science 101 series.

Do you want to learn how to create engaging data dashboards? To craft beautiful visualizations that tell compelling stories? To learn how you can quickly massage some data and visualize the results?

WiSER is hosting another session as part of their Data Science 101 Series in partnership with Darkhorse Analytics. This will be a 2-hour session with an introduction to Data Visualization and a focus on PowerBI. This series is introductory and attendees do not require background or prior experience in the Data Science field.

Using tools like PowerBI, this workshop will walk you through a typical data visualization project from start to finish. Learn from local practitioners and get some hands-on experience of what it is like to design and create beautiful data visualizations in the real world!

We will have Q&A periods throughout the session and breaks to stretch those muscles and grab a coffee!
