Tableau is one of the most powerful, easy use and widely accepted data analysis and visualization tools that do not provide handy data explanatory analysis capabilities but also provides a developer-friendly drag and drop interface to easily visualize your key findings.

This course explains right from the scratch, starting from downloading and installing your own copy of Tableau Desktop to developing, formatting and publishing your dashboard to Tableau Public.
In this course, we will walk together from the start point till the end, by understanding each concept till its roots, starting from connecting your data source then manipulating the same to achieve the desired results. Later, we will bring forward the data-driven Insights and understanding key Tableau concepts & Calculations. Finally, we will be creating a dashboard, to sum up, all.
