Introduction to the course
Welcome to this course about data visualization. I wanted this course as most of digital analysts are mostly swearing about Google Data Studio, an attractive platform which allows to create nice graphs, tables and charts... write analysis by gathering data from many third party platforms... and of course... giving even more power to Google by giving straight away your brain work to it. Google is not the only one making such solutions Tableau (hosted on Amazon Web Services) and Microsoft BI are also very common used platforms.
As I cannot let that happened, I decided to create my own course about data visualization with Free/Libre and Open Source Solutions. As a result, in this course, I will introduce you to two main platforms which are Metabase and Redash, in order for you
to keep the control of your data and host your data results and analysis, wherever you are.

I really would like to thank Lukas Winkler for the endless time he gave me by answering any questions I had. Without him this course wouldn't have be released.
I really hope you will enjoy this course.
