Webinar: Intro To Data Analytics: Tableau Basics

All data science is asking a question.

 I've been playing in Tableau for the past month, and needed to stick something on my blog to point to on my resume.

So, this webinar, hosted by Mark B at Thinkful Webinars, arrived at the right time. He gave people ample time to follow the instructions.

Data Analytics - "We have all these numbers and words, what patterns in the data can we find to make money?"

 


There was also a case study with Chipotle - A lot of their data was scattered, and communication was poor.

(Also, people were getting sick. Remember that?)

With Tableau, insights were easily shared with more accessible dashboards., saving them 10,000 hours a month. 


Here are some of the visual options I learned about; Because That's what Tableau is about - How to display information.




I learned about filters and selected a range of years to filter the data (Here, things before 1987 are no longer visible).


And If you click Country Name in the Sheet, Latitude and Longitude will automatically be put in the columns and rows.


 

The map can change; I found satellite, and the presenter didn't know it was there!

Check out the workbook, saved publicly, Here. I'm going to add more to it in the coming months.

Contactless Tech’s Role in the New Guest Experience ft. Intelity and The George

 Contactless hospitality technology is growing. You want to get away, and you'll be damned if a little thing like a deadly virus will stop you! But you still don't want to touch things. Ew. During the chat between INTELITY CEO Robert Stevenson and THE GEORGE Director of Operations Kerrie Hunter, you’ll learn how the historic boutique hotel has adapted a mobile-first guest experience in the wake of COVID-19—and how they see contactless technology affecting the future of hospitality. I don't remember how I found INTELITY (probably hoping to score a position with them), but I liked them enough to stay on the e-mail lists.
