DI/DII Training References

Over time I collected a whole bunch of useful links related to data visualisation in general and Tableau in particular. For the official Tableau Desktop 1 and Desktop 2 courses I created a collection of these links to hand out after the course for further readings, more detailed explanation and to see other use cases; below you will find these links. It follows loosely the structure of the training books; if you know of any other useful links, let me know via the comments or Twitter
