If you’re ready to build expert-level data analysis and visualization skills with Tableau Desktop, you’ve come to the right place.
This course is a hands-on and project-based dive deep into several advanced Tableau topics, ranging from data relationships and calculations to predictive analytics and dynamic design techniques.

You’ll be playing the role of a newly hired analyst for Maven Roasters, a bespoke, small batch coffee roasting company. Your mission? Use advanced analytics and visual design tools to take the company’s business intelligence reports to the next level.
We’ll kick things off by digging into relationships and the Tableau Desktop data model, exploring topics like logical vs. physical layers, contextual joins, smart aggregation, and performance optimization.
From there we’ll introduce a range of powerful visualization and design tools, including custom templates, dynamic formats, animations, parameter & set actions, and geospatial mapping.
Last but not least, we’ll cover advanced calculations like RegEx and custom LOD expressions, along with powerful predictive analytics tools like regression, forecasting, clustering, and more.
Logical & physical layers, contextual joins, smart aggregation, etc.
Custom templates, KPI shapes, dynamic formatting, filter menus, etc.
