About This Class

Learn how to leverage data in your day-to-day life to help you reach your goals.

If you're looking to get started with data analytics, then this course is for you.  This course will go over the fundamentals of data analytics through a simple, step-by-step process.  You'll learn to:

  • Gather data from different sources

By the end of this course, you will have the foundation to get started with a variety of different analytical projects, both in your career and your personal life.

The whole point of data is to inform decisions - why not use data for the decisions that matter most?

One of the best and most fun classes. Highly recommend it to all who want to learn more about data analysis! Hoping for further classes
Nice intro to analytics and Tableau and it's capabilities.
As someone with a small background in analytics, I really enjoyed this class. Sometimes a family member will talk about how they use analytics at work, but it would really be useful if I could use analytics to answer questions like--should I move to CA? should I change jobs? Should I get my pet a dental procedure? Weighing the risks and benefits for real life decisions as Tyler does is this course would help me I think. Also, the example used to illustrate the steps of analysis was quirky and will stick with me for a while, compared to other more dull examples I've come across in other videos. The visuals also kept me engaged! Good job on your first video!! After watching all the videos, I think I'll give the analytical project you mentioned a shot. Will follow up with it.
