Makeover Monday is a wonderful community initiative for developing your Tableau skills, having fun and meeting loads of people while you are at it; when I have free time from work, I am always looking to participate, when I am too busy with work I will find time to browse the #MakeoverMonday on Twitter for wonderful design ideas and inspiration.
If you love working with Tableau and have not looked into this yet, I would highly recommend it: http://www.makeovermonday.co.uk/
Makeover Monday is your weekly learning and development appointment with yourself and hundreds of passionate data people. For free! Join us every Monday to with with a given data set and create better, more effective visualizations and help us make information more accessible.
The Makeover Monday community comes together every week from around the globe and we would love for you to become part of it, too.
