There is a new course on using Tableau at, after signing up for the classes you get access to Tableau desktop for 6 months free. Paying 999 USD just to learn how to use that software is just ridiculous.

All you need to do is:

1. Go to and join this course (audit only – free):

2. Once enrolled go to week 2 of the course

3. Click on “Written instructions to install Tableau desktop”

4. Follow the instructions

And that’s it.  I strongly encourage everyone to actually go through the course, as it is very well done, especially considering that it’s applied to a real world data set, not focused solely on Tableau’s features.
