I’m not trying to get you away from my page but, on the first post I promised a list of blogs worth following and during this week I put that list together, in hope to share it over on Feedly only to find out that share is a premium feature and I only use the free version.
The blogs below are all different and that’s what makes it great in my opinion, you’ll have blogs that focus on server, other’s on very technical tips and tricks that us mortals can only dream of. But you’ll also find complete beginners just getting started and that for me is key, I as the majority of the blog writers want as many people to become interested in data, data visualisation and of course Tableau. We want as many people to feel that drawing insight of data is not the realm of some elite club and everyone should be able to do it.
If I missed someone you think it’s worth reading just let me know and I’ll add them to the list.
Without further ado, I present you:
