Dashboard Week at The Data School is Off and Racing

Written by craigsdewar on .

This week is week 13 of #DSAU1, the first cohort of The Data School Australia.  In the tradition of The Data School UK, The data schoolers will be given a data and dashboard challenge every day for 5 days in a row.  Readers of my blog will know that I am quite the fan of Horse Racing metrics, so it will come as no surprise that the dataset for the first Monday in November was all about THE MELBOURNE CUP.

I gave the team some raw data via a webscrape of, plus some history stats of winners since 1983.  They had to use Alteryx to do quite a lot of parsing in order to get the data into a Tableau friendly format.  It was great to wake up on the morning of the big race and see a whole bunch of blogs linking to a whole lot of great dashboards.


Fans of CraigsBet will also be happy that i’ve updated my Tableau Public viz to allow some informed punting decisions.
