~ Check-in up to 30 minutes before class time. Class starts promptly at time indicated.
~ All sessions offer the same content.  (Tuesday afternoon slightly shorter so will need to move at faster pace.)
~ This is a hands-on workshop; you need to bring a charged laptop with Tableau loaded.

Note - June 19th (Emancipation Day) is a skeleton crew day for most state agencies. The workshops were scheduled to take advantage of an out-of-state instructor who will be in Austin for other business, so dates are not changeable.


This is a 2.5 hour hands-on workshop. Each session can accommodate 40 people and covers the same content.

During the session a trainer guides attendees through the Tableau Desktop interface. In addition, the trainer and attendees build visualizations together while addressing the following topics:
  • Filtering
  • Sorting
  • Grouping
  • Mapping
  • Treemaps
  • Dashboards
Each attendee needs to bring a charged laptop with Tableau Desktop installed. If the person does not own a license, then they can install a trial

(As always, follow your agency policies and/or consult your IT department before installing downloads and changing equipment configuration.)



This free workshop is open to any public-sector employee interested in the topic. Each attendee needs to bring a pre-configured laptop.
