Last week was our biggest Tableau Conference yet! More than 17,000 attendees joined us in New Orleans for over 600 sessions. Even if you filled your schedule to the brim, there’s no way you could have seen it all. We captured Tableau keynotes, breakout sessions, and live content so you can revisit any sessions you may have missed—or watch them for the first time if you couldn’t join us live! Plus, we’ve rounded up all the product announcements so you know what’s available when. Transport yourself back to the Big Easy and keep the learning going!

Keynotes and breakout sessions

All Tableau keynotes (excluding our guest keynote from Adam Grant) were recorded so you can catch every exciting moment—from product announcements to the ultimate data showdown, the Iron Viz competition.

  • Opening keynote — Learn about new Tableau innovations that will help more people see and understand their data—including Ask Data and Tableau Prep Conductor—and other exciting announcements from Tableau Conference.
