Course Description

My name is Kirill Eremenko and I am a Data Scientist with over 6 years of experience in finance, retail, transport and other industries. I was trained by the best analytics mentors at Deloitte Australia and today I leverage Big Data to drive business strategy, revamp customer experience and revolutionize existing operational processes. From my Tableau course, you will straight away notice how I combine my real-life experience and academic background in Physics and Mathematics to deliver professional step-by-step coaching in the space of Data Science and Business Intelligence. I am also passionate about public speaking, and regularly present on Big Data at leading Australian universities and industry events. Because every module of this course is independent, you can start in whatever section you wish, and you can do as much or as little as you like. Each module provides a new data set and exercises that will challenge you so you can learn by immediately applying what you're learning. Contents and Overview This Tableau training begins with Tableau basics. You will navigate the software, connect it to a data file, and export a worksheet, so even beginners will feel completely at ease. To be able to find trends in your data and make accurate forecasts, you'll learn how to work with data extracts and timeseries. Also, to make data easier to digest, you'll tackle how to use aggregations to summarize information. You will also use granularity to ensure accurate calculations. In order to begin visualizing data, you'll cover how to create various charts, maps, scatterplots, and interactive dashboards for each of your projects. You'll even learn tableau data blending and joining in order to work with and present information from multiple sources. Finally, you'll cover the latest and most advanced features of data preparation and updates in tableau 10 where you will create table calculations, treemap charts, and storylines. By the time you complete this Tableau course, you'll be a highly proficient Tableau user. You will be using your skills as a data scientist to extract knowledge from data so you can analyze and visualize complex questions with ease. You'll be fully prepared to collect, examine, and present data for any purpose, whether you're working with scientific data or you want to make forecasts about buying trends to increase profits.

I have been using Tableau for 2 years. I can say it is a great course and the instructor taught you where to start and how do the job effectively. Instructor utilized actual data and that was my favorite point.

A worthy step-by-step coaching to understand tableau thoroughly. It helped me immensely in using Tableau analytics in my professional duties. I feel that every BI professional should take up such course from time to time to be in touch with the latest developments made by tableau. The nice thing about this training is that we can follow whichever module we need to know, instead of following one by one in serial. I could easily learn the niche of working with the data extracts and time series to find trends in my data to make an accurate forecast. The course made me a through professional of tableau BI.

As a beginner, it was easy for me to follow this tableau training like connecting to a data file and to do a worksheet export. I felt completely at easy. I learned Tableau completely from scratch following this course.

Kirill was really communicative. He teaches presentation styles and points on effective demonstrations. The work is dealt with thoroughly. The questions and exercise questions also encourage you to sink further into understanding the information. I frequently go back to the lessons even after finishing the curriculum.

I truly enjoyed this class. It helped a lot with some fundamentals of Tableau but do not expect to become an expert. However what you do get is a brilliant insight into how to run a data project with some best methods. But all in all a rather useful course well worth the effort.

I'm so glad I discovered Experfy and Kirill Eremenko! I took Fundamentals of Data Visualization with Tableau through Coursera, but they really didn't spend much time going through Tableau, or give many real world examples. It's very easy to follow along with Kirill and he always makes it fun and interesting. Will definitely be recommending the course to others.

The course was great, thank you very much for taking the time to do this for all of us!!! The only comment I would leave is on the table calculations module. Sometimes Kirill refers to a color say "green" or "blue" while there is no green on the viz and instead of blue he's selecting a different color (red, for example), this was confusing while trying to follow along but other than that little detail the course was great! I really enjoyed it!

I had never used Tableau before but am fairly expert in Excel. I had gone through several tutorials on youtube which were helpful, but this course really takes it to the next level and I've already learned advanced concepts in the first few modules. I can't believe how much time can be saved vs Excel in many types of data visualizations! This course is great.
