Tableau I (Live stream at HSL) Return to listing

  Description

Tableau is a user-friendly software application used to create static or interactive visualizations and dashboards. Examples can be found here: https://public.tableau.com/s/gallery

Tableau's drag-and-drop interface provides tools to build a variety of visualizations with no coding required, and visualizations can be embedded in websites by copying and pasting embed code. In this workshop, participants will create basic visualizations and an interactive dashboard in Tableau Public.
