Data visualization has become very important due to the increase in processing power and organizations being able to unlock their data from jail. It has become the best way to report results and findings to your audience in the most simple and gripping way. However, there is a shortage of visualization experts who can use various tools to explain to stakeholders not just historical data, but also the machine learning results.

In this course, we’ll be using tools such as Tableau, which is the best visualization tool as ranked by the Gartner Report 2017, as well as open source tools such as R and Python to understand data and share findings between fellow data scientists.

This course takes you gradually from basic, fundamental topics to advanced topics with a ton of examples. It also focuses on making you independent of these tools, so you can carry forward your visualization knowledge to any other tool you may need to use. We cover three tools in visualization, namely R, Python, and Tableau and setting up your basic framework for any project you take up. By the end of this course, you’ll have the fundamentals in place, so you can make visualizations on your own with the correct use of various visualization elements.

Mohammed often wondered how something as simple as a phone’s sensor can explain to us everything about a user’s activities and how a visualization could explain to a business user everything that there is about their business with some amazing insights in under 5 minutes. This made him switch to the amazing world of data science and visualization. Having worked with some talented people in this field, Mohammed finds it amazing, as the end results are always solutions that could impact many lives and make them a bit easier.

Mohammed is also interested in Artificial intelligence, Neural Networks, and IoT. He is also skilled at writing Python scripts for ingestion into a big data system from production environments, Dev Ops, and creating Android Applications and WordPress websites. Mohammed believes that a visualization artist is only good if they have the capability to explain their visualization to a layman flawlessly. This skill is something he excels in, making him a strong candidate to not just explain how to make a powerful visualization, but how to make a visualization independent of any tool.

When he’s not working, Mohammed loves to meet new people and learn new things. He actively blogs at
