Would you like to learn how to connect to your data, create different types of charts, and combine them to create an interactive visualisation without any coding involved? Learn how to get started with Tableau Public in an afternoon workshop at newsrewired on 22 November. Spaces for the workshop, led by Jade Le Van, are limited and will be allocated on a first come first served basis – delegates should have Tableau Public installed on their laptops – it is free and can be downloaded here.
Jade works on the Tableau Public team. She helps journalists, bloggers and academics visualise their data to tell insightful stories. Her skills range from finding and cleaning data to effective data storytelling. She regularly writes and hosts webinars on these topics, and will also explain, in a short talk at newsrewired, how media organisations around the world successfully use Tableau Public in their investigative pieces.
