The three Basics Courses are designed to provide a first hands-on overview of basic Dataiku DSS concepts so that you can easily create and prepare your own datasets in DSS. Completion of the Basics courses will enable you to move on to more advanced courses.


Throughout the lessons, we will work with a fictional online t-shirt retailer called Haiku T-Shirt, and use their enterprise data to illustrate the basic steps of working with Dataiku. Before each hands-on section, you will have a chance to grasp each new concept by watching short videos.


In the hands-on lessons in this Basics 101 course, we will load Haiku T-Shirt’s order log into Dataiku DSS, perform a cursory review of the data, and apply the screening rules identified in the review to create an updated dataset.
