Best of the Tableau Web: Waterfall charts, data portraits, and more

Be inspired by the latest and greatest content from the Tableau Community in our November roundup!

Happy Christmas everyone!

We’re very late with this post, but that doesn’t stop us giving you the gift of Tableau blogs to read. It’s the Best of the Tableau Web for November 2018. This month, I want to highlight the growing number of people blogging about their #WorkoutWednesday adventures. If you’re not familiar with it, #WorkoutWednesday is a project run by the Tableau community to test your Tableau knowledge. If you’re ready to develop your skills and learn along with others, do check it out. If you’re looking for ways to boost your Tableau career, projects like this will help develop your skills and enhance a professional profile.

Two posts I wanted to highlight were from Sean Miller and Nina Lindell on their reflections from #WorkoutWednesday Week 48. What I enjoy about their posts is how they are sharing their learnings in unique ways. Sean’s post reads like a narrative we can follow, not only to learn the process, but also feel to the emotion of tackling, and solving, a problem. Nina, on the other hand, categorizes her posts into learnings, sharing lessons that can be applied to other situations.

Posts like these show that if you want to share your thoughts through a blog or video, there are many different ways to do it. As we look to 2019, you might be considering blogging. I highly recommend you do: there’s no right or wrong type of post—just write about the ideas that inspire you, in your own voice.

Until next time, I’d like to say a huge thank you to every single person who’s written a Tableau blog, recorded a video, or shared other content in 2018. It’s a pleasure to read everything and see the passion in this community come to life. Get ready, because the team has great plans for 2019.

Merry Christmas and a happy New Year!
