Data Explorers Guild: Data Viz Challenge-August (Film Data)
Userlevel 2

Our next Data Explorers Guild is back this week, on August 4th! We really happy to dig into some more data with our amazing Looker users, and see what fun with can with some Loan data.


As for this month’s Data Viz Challenge, we’ve decided to go with some film data, cause who doesn’t love movies and see what others think! 


Here is the explores again that you can use as a starting point: 

While you’re digging through the dataset, here are some refreshed prompts you can keep in mind to help guide your exploration: 


  1. What can you find out about your favorite actor/director?

  2. Any factors budget plays into interesting data points?

  3. Everyone likes to vote for a favorite movie, hoe does your fair?

As always, while we’d love for you to take some time to try and explore the dataset before the event, we’ll also take a little time during the meetup to do some analysis. Can’t wait to get together soon and uncover some fun insights together!

Hi Nicholas


Thanks for continually posting Looker challenges, providing everyone with hand on opportunities to explore Looker potentialities. I really want to be part of this.

Just one doubt though, considering Looker has switched its training platform, new users will no longer have access to training environment/sandbox. Does it mean we need to have a license to patriciate in data challenge activities?
