Mission

All we do should be geared toward a happy life. Naturally this program is meant to bring you more happiness in your professional career. In order to find happiness we need to discover those things about ourself that truly make us happy. In order to meet this goal we need to get weird.

Data visualization with Tableau is an intellectual process, but our design and expression doesn’t have to be feelingless. To get the feels flowing we’ll get groovy with Tableau. Tableau is design to keep designers and developers like us in the flow with our data. Let me and my team set up the structure for you to flow through for maximal fun.

Goals

Stop drowning in drudgery and start splashing in the pool of potential as a Tableau professional. Whether you are looking to stand out in your current role, land a new one or explore the possibilities in a role as a Tableau professional this course is designed with you in mind. Landing a Tableau developer position is not only likely up your pockets, but also turn that frown upside down. Tableau developers are much more fulfilled by bringing their data to life with the interactive dashboards they design. No longer are you limited to all that can be done with Excel. You get to breathe life into your data and wow your audience through interactive stories.
