Want to take your visualization skill set to the next level?

In this Essentials Series Workshop you'll learn to leverage Tableau's aesthetics with R to produce dynamic and visually appealing plots, dashboards and graphics.

==== INTRODUCTION ====

Integrating R with Tableau is a powerful way to improve your data dashboards and build interactive plots.

By connecting R through Tableau’s calculated fields we leverage the functionality and power of R with Tableau's aesthetics. Imagine including models you’ve built in R and having access to the numerous packages from the Comprehensive R Archive Network from Tableau!

==== WHAT WE'RE GOING TO DO ====

In this applied workshop we discuss how to establish a connection between R and Tableau, what it can and cannot do, and helpful tips along the way.

Come learn more about this capability and see it in action!
