While Tableau is an indispensable tool in the arsenal of most corporate business intelligence analysts, data analysts, and data scientists, many people are uncertain about the difference between Tableau and spreadsheet tools like Excel. In this part of the course, you will learn when and why you need Tableau, as well as the difference between Tableau and other spreadsheet tools. We will also get you started by showing you how to install Tableau Public (Tableau’s free version).
In this section, you will create your first Tableau charts and tables. We will teach you how to create basic charts and adjust parts of their appearance. By the end of this section, you will be able to use many of Tableau's core functionalities, like creating custom fields, adding calculations to a table, adding totals and subtotals, and adding a filter.
This section is a practical example that will help you apply your skills in practice with real data. The exercise is divided in two parts. In the first part, we will test several ways to connect our data. You already studied joins in SQL. Here, you will see how to apply joins in a Tableau context. You will also learn about data blending, and current best practices. By the end of the exercise, you will create three charts. Each of these charts analyzes a different aspect of a real-life dataset. We will group the charts in a dashboard, and add a filter, applying to all three charts at the same time.
