  11. Glyn Bourne


    Very easy to follow presentations and, as always, little additional helps to help refine knowledge of how to use Tableau.

  12. Josh Aragon


    I really enjoyed Rob’s other Tableau course. I was about to email him to ask if he has thought about creating an additional course. Then I noticed an announcement for this course. I think this is just the type of course I was hoping he would create. I feel comfortable with Tableau’s basic functionality but I am having a hard time making my dashboards look professional. I’m very excited for this course and can’t wait to see what I learn from it.

  13. Great Teacher


    Thanks so much for opening another powerful BI tool.
