Event description

Description

Want to learn how you can use data to help your company, organization, and/or community? Do you get asked to “show the data” but you’re not sure how to or where to even start? Want to learn from tech industry experts?

Washington Technology Industry Association is partnering with Census 2020, Seattle Public Library, King County Library System, and Lake Washington Institute of Technology to hold free data analysis and visualization skills workshops.

In these workshops we will familairize you with Census 2020, teach you how to access and interpret Census Bureau data for your own use, cover graph and chart-making with Excel, and finally we will teach you how to take this data and use it to tell a compelling story using Tableau Public.
