Why a course by Jamie Fry?

I have 10 years experience with tableau in the workplace. I've watched it grow from simple drag and drop tool into a extremely powerful visualisation software, from a Private company to an IPO. I am not a full time udemy instructor, which i believe is a strength. What i will teach you i use everyday in my workplace, for all different manner ofclients across the globe. My technical teaching of this tool comes with real workplace Do's and Don'ts, teaching you will not get from full time instructors that have been out of the workplace for a number of years.I teach tableau in classrooms face to faceand via video conferencing, and years of thisexperience has led to this streamlined course.
