Learn how to extract, analyze, and visualize data with the Google Suite - Google BigQuery (SQL) and Google Sheets!
This Bootcamp is live and instructor led
What the heck is data analytics?
Think about all of the data that a company collects and has access to. Ever wonder how that data gets used? With the use of SQL, analysts are able to extract this data and analyze it in every way possible. The analysis, derived from data using SQL, can help drive strategic business decisions. To add another layer to the analysis, you can visualize your data with charts and graphs that can explain complex data points in simple data visuals, using tools such as Tableau.
About the Bootcamp
This Bootcamp is best for those with little to no data analytics experience and would like to prep for a role as an entry level or junior analyst using skills from SQL and different data visualization tools (i.e. Tableau, Power BI, Qlikview, etc.). All students will have three hours of prerequisite material provided prior to the start of class to help prep them for the first day of the Bootcamp. In this Bootcamp, we will use Google BigQuery for SQL and Google Sheets as our Excel substitute.
