Bursting with fresh ideas and guaranteed to provide your RDI of Tableau goodness, here are some of the latest additions to our Tableau Hub to feed your head:

 

Tableau Blogs

Data with a French Flair

http://frenchflairdata.blogspot.co.uk/

See large data sets worked into compelling visualisations. A French ex-pat based in the UK, Vincent Flores’ blog approaches current affairs in France, Europe and the World with light humour and a certain je ne sais quoi.

 

Tableau Friction

http://tableaufriction.blogspot.co.uk

A Tableau blog that explores the not-so-easy aspects of working with Tableau. Written by Chris Gerrard, a BI consultant and software purist who cares enough to share some of the speed-bumps he encounters with Tableau. See also his companion blog ‘Better BI’, which has a lot on Tableau too.

 

Drawing With Numbers

http://drawingwithnumbers.artisart.org/

Tableau Zen Master and general man-of-many-talents, Jonathan Drummey brings us a fresh and well thought-out blog in which he shares his experience of Tableau, effortlessly teaching us through his own explorations and musings along the way.

 

RyRobes

http://ryrobes.com/

From the generous sprinkling of cult film and TV references to the Metallicanalysis, this blog from Tableau Zen Master and self-branded Heavy Metal Solutions Consultant definitely has the volume set at 11 – in fact someone should put a Parental Advisory sticker on it. Something of a ‘lifehacker’ for Tableau, this is an epic resource to help you tackle the Kraken alive.

 

Fonseca Data Science

http://www.fonsecadatascience.com/blog.html

Data science, visual analytics, Tableau and the 2012 US election come together in a vibrant swirl from one of the first Tableau certified professionals in the States, Leigh Fonseca.

 

 

Data Visualisation Resources

Eager Eyes

http://eagereyes.org/

More than a blog, EagerEyes is Robert Kosara’s place to reflect on the world of information visualization and visual communication of data. The goal is to help digest things that are happening in the field and discuss developments that may be tangential or early, but that are likely to have an impact.
