Analyzing and Visualizing Data with Looker (AVDL)

 

Résumé du cours

This course is an introductory-level training that outlines Looker’s capabilities for working with data and provides guided demos and hands-on practice with Looker functionality for data exploration, analysis and visualization.

This course enables learners to do the kind of data exploration and analysis in Looker that would formerly be done primarily by SQL developers or analysts. Participants will learn how to leverage Looker's modern analytics platform to find and explore relevant content in their organization’s Looker instance, ask questions of data, create new metrics as needed, and build and share visualizations and dashboards to facilitate data-driven decision making.
