James will be presenting his data storytelling session, “What’s in a name? – Data Stories to impress the bard.” at SQL Bits 2020
Data on its own is useful, but boring. Data in story form makes people sit up and take notice.
Every year, the U.S. Census Bureau compiles a data set of the names given to children born per state. In this session, we’ll take this publicly available data set and use it to create an epic data story. You will learn how to identify key data points, visualize them effectively, and create a compelling narrative to present your findings to any type of audience.
So, whether your data story is a history, a tragedy, or a thriller, you’ll learn how to tell it in a way that will captivate and enthrall your audience.
