This is an informal, practical, hands on workshop aimed at beginners to data visualisation and Power BI. We’ll be looking at how long people live in different countries – and how much they drink; investigating which passengers survived or perished on the Titanic; analysing the text of a BBC News article; and, if time allows, looking at the risk and revenue results of a (fictitious) bank.
We’ll start at 6:30 pm prompt and finish by 8:30 pm latest. For each case study, I’ll give a quick 5-minute intro and demo then there will be a guided exercise for about 20 minutes.
Bring your own laptop. A week before the event, I'll email joining instructions - how to download and install the (free) Power BI Desktop software and a few public datasets.
