In this post I mentioned the Tableau style guide that my team was putting together. The Markdown flavor of the guide, along with the PowerPoint deck used to introduce this to our internal Tableau User’s Group, is now available at GitHub. This is very much a work still in progress and one I hope to expand and revise extensively going forward.
This work is the condensation of various tips, tricks, and ah ha moments in our experiences in working with Tableau. I’ve also attempted to combine as much of the core principles from Stephen Few, the terrific style guide from The University of Oxford’s Tableau Style Guide [pdf], and other source which I’m failing to mention.
Again, this is very preliminary work. I’d very much appreciate feedback, pull requests, or other commentary. Pull requests are especially welcomed.
