I’ll be honest Louise, I feel like you’re in a bit of a slump at the moment. You haven’t made a Tableau Public viz in over a month and you haven’t written a blog in two weeks. For you, this is abnormal. While in training at the Data School, you were churning out vizzes about once a week and blog posts about twice a week. It’s been two weeks since DS11 graduated from the Data School and have been out helping clients. Maybe that’s why you haven’t made anything… Or maybe that’s what you’re telling yourself but in reality, you just can’t think of anything.
This week is DS11’s last week of training. Next week, we’ll all be split up and sent to our placements for the next 6 months. We probably won’t all be back together for a while so I’ve been feeling quite reflective. Throughout the past 4 months, we have done some amazing work and in this post, I would like to highlight the vizzes and blogs that are personally my favourite. DS11 has produced so much useful and incredible content over the past few months and this post can’t possibly cover it all so be sure to check out our Twitters and Tableau Public profiles.
How could I have a favourite viz section and not include this beautiful viz by Ellie. This viz was done for Dashboard Week Day 1 and deservedly got Viz of the Day! Check it out here. Isn’t the snow incredible?!
This time last year, I was a final year Medical Engineering student without a clear career path. Now, I’ve graduated and I have a job that I love – more than I expected to have by this time!
2018 has been an amazing year and I’d like to take a moment to say I am so thankful for my family and friends for supporting me throughout and to everyone at the Data School and the wider data community for welcoming me. Now, on to a recap of the year…
As cliché as it is, time really has flown by. The Data School’s 11th cohort have just completed our 6th week of training and will be beginning our 7th week at the time of this post’s publishing. Crazy right?
With only a couple weeks left until the halfway point of our 4 months of training, I thought I’d reflect on how things have gone so far, major lessons I’ve learned, and what I want to do to make the most of my remaining training time.
What I have done so far, in numbers.
6 weeks of Tableau and Alteryx training
2 client projects
1 client project as project manager
9 blog posts published on the Data School blog (or 10 including this one!)
1 domain purchased for my personal website (here!)
