Using Tableau Desktop with Amazon RedshiftGo to Lab
It is a horrible lab. I couldn't progress through it as the RDP kept crashing. I also can't right-click the run-sql to get it to run.
Too much Tableau. SHould be more about connections and how to fine endpoint etc.
Hi. I think too much time is spent on using Tableau and not enough on explaining the AWS setup and the benefits of using EC2, S3, Redshift, etc, etc. I have many years experience with Tableau, but even I found jumping back an forward to follow the instructions a real time suck. Please also increase the size and quality of the images in the instructions and address spelling and grammar. Where is the "United states"? If you spell out "Remote Desktop Protocol", please put the acronym (RDP) next to it. This is all standard stuff. Many thanks.
Seriously broken. I started the process to load data, at about 7-8 minutes into the lab. It still had not completed when I ended the lab with less than a minute to spare. Consequently, the lab could not be worked. Step 26 was to load a table. It had been working on it for 34 minutes (and still not complete) when I ended the lab. Obviously it is dependent on the bulk load to complete. The data for the lab needs to be cut down by an order of magnitude at least. It is unworkable. This is after the lab was "fixed".
