Data Visualization 101: Key Tips and Tricks to Help Your Data Become Actually Useful Information Through Visualizations
Maybe you’ve seen one of those graphs that takes a diploma in cryptography to understand (or at least one that you need the original creator to explain a time or two before you really grasp what it means -ahem…  pareto…-). Powerful visualizations are those that require very little (or no) explaining, and that quickly and effectively portray the intended information behind the data. We’ll take a deep dive into the good, the bad, and the ugly of data visualizations, and leave you with a set of tools you can use to successfully tell a story with your data.

Dashboard in an Hour: Recreating Hans Rosling’s Famous Gapminder Visualization using PowerBI and Power Query, in Under an Hour
Hans Rosling was a Swedish physician, academic, statistician, and public speaker. His work as a Professor of International Health at Karolinska Institute and co-founder and chairman of the Gapminder Foundation lead him to create some of the most telling data visualizations regarding world statistics (health, wealth, happiness, fertility, life expectancy, etc.). In this session, we’ll re-build one of his most famous data visuals using 5 different data sets, Power BI, and a little elbow grease. At the end of the hour, you should leave the sessions with a deeper understanding of the capabilities Power BI offers, and how you can utilize it in your organization to create engaging visualizations for your data.
