Upcoming events and community participation

  • Stay up to date with the latest and greatest from the Tableau Community. We'll help you along in your Tableau journey, bring your data skills to the next level, and nurture powerful connections. 
  • DataViz Social Initiatives: "A couple of social initiatives stopped in 2021. I see comments about missing them and was curious what people were looking for. While I have thoughts, I want the data. My goal with this survey is to get a pulse and put the data out there. You will not identified unless you choose to be identified. This is not a commitment on my part nor yours to create an initiative."
  • The Feedback Loop Sign-Up Form: January 2022  This data vizzing workshop was started by Joshua Smith and is based on creative art workshops. He put it best: "The idea of the Feedback Loop, and of creative arts workshops in general, is meant to test the subjective and aesthetic elements against peers. It's meant to provide diversity of perspectives, because what works for one person may not work for another. And, what I've learned now, it can create an incredible community of people devoted to helping one another grow as artists." 
  • Sign up to be a panelist for the 3charts@3 Live: A Mystery Chart Show featuring topics like personal finance, energy, healthcare and more!
