Visual Analytics with Tableau: Covers the newest versions of Tableau 2018.3 and 2019.1 plus Tableau Prep, Tableau’s brand-new data integration application. Requires no background in mathematics nor any programming experience. Focuses on the visual analytics functionality of Tableau rather than complex statistical programming. Tableau is changing the way versions are numbered, that’s all. As of January 2018, the company changed the naming convention to be based on the year the software is released, meaning 2018.1 is the first release of the current year.

It shouldn’t be difficult to download Tableau Public from here.
If you’re wondering why we searched for “Tableau Public”, the reason is quite trivial. This is Tableau’s free version. If you don’t have a paid subscription for Tableau, this is an excellent alternative. You can practice with most of the program’s functionalities and you don’t have to pay Tableau’s annual fee. So, it is up to you – you can either use Tableau Public for free or pay for Tableau’s desktop version. Both options would allow you to follow along. There are some issues when you want to connect Tableau Public and programming languages like SQL, R, and Python. To do that, you’ll need Tableau Desktop. But for now, Tableau Public will do just fine and allow us to practice at will.
