I’m excited to announce that I’ll be teaching a course on Data Visualisation on 30th May 2012 in London, in partnership with Technitrain, the UK’s foremost Microsoft training organisation.
If you are looking to understand more about Microsoft’s latest Business Intelligence data visualisation offering, then this one-day course is for you! We’ll learn about SQL Server 2012 Power View and Excel, using SQL Server 2012 Tabular Models as a data source.
Although this course focuses in technology, we will also be covering aspects of perception, cognitive psychology and data visualisation debate over what makes a good data visualisation. Understanding the ‘why’ of data visualisation can help you to see ‘how’ to produce better visualisations. We’ll be using Microsoft Power View and Excel in order to apply this knowledge to practical applications, thereby helping you to get the ‘message’ of the data across to your business users. Here are some of the topics we will cover:
- Data Visualisation – Theory and Practice
- Finding Patterns in Data
- Getting to Know your Data using Power View and Excel
- Power View in Depth
- Dashboards – putting it all together
Please join myself and other ‘data vizzers’ for this one day course, and you can find more details, including Registration, by clicking here.
I look forward to seeing you there, and please do give me a shout if you’re coming along!
