Sabri Aouani is a Data Analyst. After starting a new job in late 2021, Sabri taught himself Tableau using YouTube. Since then, Sabri has continued to sharpen his Tableau skills by participating in community projects like #MakeoverMonday and more actively posting on Tableau Public. Over the past 4 months, Sabri has also shared over 100 Tableau Tips on Linkedin. 

On Linkedin, Sabri shares written tips and video tutorials. One of Sabri’s most popular Linkedin posts shows users how to create a candlestick chart, a financial chart used to represent the movement of an asset's price over time. After reaching this milestone, Sabri has also ventured into creating YouTube videos for longer form content as well. 

Sabri is inspired by members of the DataFam who share Tableau content with the intention to teach and help other users. He appreciates the consistency with which content is produced by many of the content creators in the DataFam and Sabri aims to follow in their footsteps and regularly share content. Sabri finds inspiration for the tips he shares from his own learnings. When he encounters a problem and solves it, he creates a tutorial in hopes of helping others who may face the same problems. 

Connect with Sabri on Linkedin, Tableau Public, and on his YouTube channel.
