Last week I wrote a bit about the Matlab support with Tableau. Our team also owns R support (it is all built on a REST API) and many people have been using R for years with Tableau. Talks about R integration are a very popular topic at Tableau Conference each year as well, so there has been a tremendous amount of interest in this area.
So much interest, in fact, that Jen Stirrup has written a new book that is due out pretty soon, Advanced Analytics with R and Tableau. It will be available in paperback and ebook formats and is due out on September 6. That is less than a month away as I write this and I am looking forward to getting my copy.
Good luck, Jen. I hope you sell many copies of this book!
