This week, alongside WorkoutWednesday we have a new collaboration, which gives you a chance to try out another community project, #PreppinData. PreppinData is a like workoutwednesday but with Tableau Prep Builder. Each week they give you a messy data set, some requirements and a finished data set, you then have to use Tableau Prep Builder to clean the data set and get to the final outcome. This week we start off with a PreppinData challenge, which then feeds into WorkoutWednesday. Are you ready to truly feel the Burn?
To celebrate Tableau’s Music month I found a great data source on one of my favourite artists (Ed Sheeran) that led Carl Allchin to ask a question about one of his faves (Ben Howard). We want to analyse the two artists careers based on their touring patterns and as two UK-based singer-songwriters who appeared on the UK music scene at similar times, how have they developed.
For the #PreppinData challenge please click here. This is where you will get the data from.
Now for the WorkoutWednesday challenge.
