What you'll learn in this data visualization training:

This bootcamp intends to bridge effective data visualization with engaging storytelling. It is composed of two core parts focused on foundational concepts and technical skills, bookended with spaces for introductions and debriefing.

During the first module of the class, we will build up a knowledge base of core concepts that help create effective, engaging, replicable, and sustainable visual communication.

In the second module, we will focus on the technical aspect of the work through hands-on activities and technical demos. We will cover a technical spectrum, dabbling across tools and messing with code whenever possible.

This bootcamp is ideal for entry to mid-level professionals who want or currently have job titles with words like Analyst, Digital, Communications, Fundraising, Insights, Data. The ideal class attendee has at least a few months of hands-on data work. For people who are highly technical (proficient and active in Python, R, GIS, BI tools), the storytelling and effective communication part will provide the most value, while those on business and operations sides will see a lot of value in the extensive technical toolkit and ecosystem of free resources.

College students, small business owners, entrepreneurs, and executive level decision makers would also benefit from participating.
