Hands-on Workshop: Data Dashboards for Mid-sized Organizations
This is a hands-on workshop for data neophytes (though those more experienced with data science are welcome too!) After covering the conceptual basics of data dashboards, we’ll dive in and build a dashboard of our own using a sample data set. We’ll work together to come up with some use cases drawn from real-life experience of workshop attendees, then consider how we might configure our dashboards to help us address those questions. We’ll explore various types of data visualizations that can be created with just a few clicks by non-profit staff who have limited or no knowledge of coding. This session will be highly collaborative, interactive, and above all, FUN!
