Ready to start building in Wave Analytics? In this course, you’ll find out how to design and create an effective dashboard layout to help explorers quickly find their way around. You’ll learn how to build lenses and “clip” them into your dashboards to create selectors, filters, and widgets, and how to create a faceted dashboard which automatically updates as explorers interact with it. Once you’ve created a dashboard, you’ll learn about the JSON file that defines a dashboard and how it can be modified for advanced functionality, such as creating mobile layouts and modifying lens queries. You’ll also learn how to organize your lenses and dashboards using apps and ensure that only the right users have access to them.

Think this course can be longer, as there are so many details and services that need to be discussed.

It should include certification practice questions in relation to the topic discussed.

Vinay did an excellent job training our class. The information was useful and will come in handy in my work life.

I really enjoyed the Architecting on AWS class. The class was very informative about all the AWS tools that we can use and will need when we go to the cloud.

I had a good experience with ExitCertified. I got a deeper understanding of AWS and should be able to put it to practice immediately.
