How to Teach Tableau/Alteryx

Last month, DS11 taught the public Tableau and Alteryx and this month, we are conducting webinars teaching the same content. Check out our meetup page for more details on upcoming webinars and events!

For both of these lessons, I taught Alteryx Data Prep. If you missed my webinar, it was recorded and will be uploaded so I will update this post with a link later.

In this blog post, I will go over my teaching experience and some top tips from myself and from the beautiful people at the Information Lab.
