We hope you have enjoyed the book, samples, videos and solutions. Please keep us in mind for customized, on-site training. We authored and taught the original Tableau training program as the founding Tableau Education Partner, way back in 2009. We have trained thousands around the world including at every major Tableau conference since 2009, the only partner to have taught original Tableau training at their conferences to date. Our training is not offered by Tableau or any other partner, it is exclusive to Freakalytics and is built around the analytic thought process with Tableau as the tool of choice.

All the best,
