Now in late April, 2016, I am about to publish a new series of articles that contain the results of the 2.5 year long, 3danim8 blogging experiment.
Before doing so, I’m trying to publish articles that have been sitting int the Draft section of my blog. This is one of those articles. Fair warning: There is a lot of content in this article, and the content will be found in over 30 videos.
I teach the topic of Tableau according to the ways in which I understand and use the tool. My courses focus on fundamentals in several categories. These fundamentals include:
- Data types, structures, conversions and pre-processing methods;
- Tableau definitions, behaviors, operations and quantitative techniques;
- Problem definitions, solution techniques, and visual presentation of results;
Since I typically only have 3 days to teach how to effectively use Tableau in a business setting, I have created videos that show the various fundamentals in the context of how I use Tableau. These videos are intended to help my students continue to learn Tableau after they leave the courses I teach.
This article is simply a collection of videos that contain some of the core fundamentals as well as other applied examples I have published in this blog. There are also videos in this collection that I have never published in this blog.
These videos were all originally made in an ad-hoc fashion over several years. I did not write scripts for them and I generally did not edit them once they were made. Sometimes I might have used the wrong word like “blend” when I meant to say “join”. Usually there were not too many mistakes in any one video, but I determined a long time ago that I did not have the time to correct simple mistakes like these.
For Tableau purists, I apologize if I used the wrong term because my brain was forming the next paragraph in real-time so that I could finish the video and get back to other things I was supposed to be doing. I now offer this video collection to anyone wanting to know more about Tableau and/or Alteryx in some cases. I plan on doing an Alteryx video collection in the near future.
