Tableau’s Javascript API evolves fast. In just a few versions we have arrived from the basic embedding to an event based, fully asynchronous API. Maybe the last, missing piece was accessing the summary and underlying data (however most of us used the [crayon-5a37134e41513567303170-i/]  vizql controller to get the underlying data as featured in our excel […]

However, the programming language determines the genre, you can write heroic poems in C or ASM, zen koans in Lisp/Clojure, contemporary farout stories in Haskell or write the next […]
