Week 2 Sessions: Padding Your Skills
Specialty Functions in Google Sheets
Tuesday, Jan. 19, 2-4 p.m.
These aren’t your dad’s functions. They’re unique to Sheets and open up a whole new world of possibilities. We’ll create an expanding lookup from an unordered table, extract a subset of data from messy strings, and build a pivot table that isn’t actually a pivot table.
Slice, Dice and Visualize Data in Tableau
Wednesday, Jan. 20, 2-4 p.m.
Employers favor candidates who can bring to the table an understanding of the concepts of data visualization. Tableau brings drag and drop simplicity to creating charts and visualizations that tell the story buried in the data. Anyone with a working familiarity with spreadsheets can take themselves to new heights with tools like Tableau!
Dive into Photo Editing in Photoshop
Thursday, Jan. 21, 2-4 p.m.
We’re going to test our endurance as we look at Photoshop’s tools, functions, filters and effects. Learn to touch-up photos, manipulate them, work with color and make animated gifs. Then, we’re going to pull up a few other options that you might want to consider as well.
