In Tableau Desktop, you have a data visualisation tool that enables you to connect to and query data from files and databases using preconfigured connectors. From the datasets you define, you can create worksheets and Visualizations which can then be shared with your end users directly or compiled with filters and actions into interactive dashboards.

This course introduces Tableau Desktop concepts, the interface and terminology. You will connect to data, prepare data for analysis, create charts and tables, learn about publishing and permissions. This course is perfect for starting your journey with Tableau and working towards your first Tableau certification.

Fundamentals of Tableau Training Course in Sweden

Sweden is a Nordic country that borders Norway, Finland and Denmark. The name "Sweden" originated from the "Svear", a people mentioned by the Roman author Tacitus. While being the largest Nordic country, Sweden is the fifth-largest country in Europe. Sweden has a total population of 10.4 million. The capital and largest city is Stockholm. About 15 percent of the country lies within the Arctic Circle, so that's why from May until mid-July, sunlight lasts all day in the north of the Arctic Circle. On the other hand, during December, the capital citt experiences only about 5.5 hours of daylight.

When in Sweden, visiting Stockholm's Old Town Gamla Stan, Sweden's most popular museum Vasa Museum and a UNESCO World Heritage Site; Drottningholm Palace is highly recommended.
