Tableau 2019.2 - Desktop

Tableau Development, Expert


Expert Tableau Desktop Development will bring your workbooks to new levels. From showing you how to move past basic visualizations with waterfalls, bump charts, Bollinger bands and more, your Tableau experience will grow to new bounds. If you're interested in certification, this hands-on course will help explain how to use nested LOD functions, use the ATTR function and work with ratios. Expand your analysis by learning how to integrate R into your workbooks. In addition to all this, the class explores mapping with both polygon maps and Mapbox integration. 

A fully interactive experience, our online classroom offers a unique opportunity to learn from and work with a subject matter expert. Participants get practice performing the skills and can ask questions of the instructor in real time.



Hands-on learning exercises in this course will be completed on Tableau Desktop 2019; however, nearly all techniques are also relevant to all versions of Tableau Desktop 2018 and 10, except where noted throughout the course.
