DSAC hosted the competition workshop for the IHL category participants on 28 August 2018. Four Tableau experts conducted the workshop which was attended by approximately 20 students from Singapore Polytechnic, Temasek Polytechnic and Ngee Ann Polytechnic.
In the 3-hour workshop, participants were briefed on the theme of the competition which focused on the four pillars that determined Singapore – The Next Chapter. These pillars were Security and Global Collaboration, Sustainability & Infrastructure, Economy & Entrepreneurship, and Socio-economics. The Tableau experts also shared the power of Visual Analytics in drawing insights from data, and an example of the submission by a past winner of the competition. Subsequently, participants were taken through a hands-on session on using Tableau to visualize data.
