This course is designed for me to pass on as much knowledge about Tableau to you as I can.

We will go through the most popular Tableau questions and I will reveal how I would go about answering each of these questions.

Moreover, there will be ample examples in this course and I will explain my answers in detail and actually show you how it all plays out in the software.

The course is broken up into three sections based on the question types:

  • Simple
  • Moderate
  • Difficult

Also you can use the questions in this course to check your knowledge of Tableau - after I reveal the question, pause the video and try to answer the question. Then check if your answer is the same as mine.

This is a short, dynamic, and fun course!

Unlike my other courses you won't have to do any exercises. The lectures have a conversational format, so all you need to do is relax and enjoy how we delve into the diverse world of Tableau.

I look forward to seeing you inside!

Data Scientist & Forex Systems Expert

My name is Kirill Eremenko and I am super-psyched that you are reading this!

I teach courses in two distinct Business areas on Udemy: Data Science and Forex Trading. I want you to be confident that I can deliver the best training there is, so below is some of my background in both these fields.

Data Science

Professionally, I am a Data Science management consultant with over five years of experience in finance, retail, transport and other industries. I was trained by the best analytics mentors at Deloitte Australia and today I leverage Big Data to drive business strategy, revamp customer experience and revolutionize existing operational processes.

From my courses you will straight away notice how I combine my real-life experience and academic background in Physics and Mathematics to deliver professional step-by-step coaching in the space of Data Science. I am also passionate about public speaking, and regularly present on Big Data at leading Australian universities and industry events.

Forex Trading

Since 2007 I have been actively involved in the Forex market as a trader as well as running programming courses in MQL4. Forex trading is something I really enjoy, because the Forex market can give you financial, and more importantly - personal freedom.

In my other life I am a Data Scientist - I study numbers to analyze patterns in business processes and human behaviour... Sound familiar? Yep! Coincidentally, I am a big fan of Algorithmic Trading :) EAs, Forex Robots, Indicators, Scripts, MQL4, even java programming for Forex - Love It All!


To sum up, I am absolutely and utterly passionate about both Data Science and Forex Trading and I am looking forward to sharing my passion and knowledge with you!
