I am trying to get into the field of data science, but besides familiarity with the basics of sql, I'm pretty on experienced. Planning on teaching myself tableau. Any suggestions to get into this field?
Don’t learn Tableau. You don’t even really need to know R or Python. Just get really good at SQL and study the metrics of the industry you’re going into. Going to a SaaS company? Learn retention, basic lifetime value. Ecommerce? Know basics of transactional profit and repurchase rates. Gaming company? ARPU, spend pct, whales, etc. study common visualization techniques and what you’d use for certain metrics. That’s about it
