    Coding and Calculated Fields

    Tom Hier

      I've been using Tableau for a while, but I have little experience in programming and coding, which makes creation of calculated fields somewhat difficult.  At the recent conference, I asked a Tableau Doctor whether there was any primer on learning to code in Tableau.  Apparently, there is none.  So a few questions for more experienced users:

       

      1.  Has anyone found any good resources that would be helpful in teaching someone the basics of syntax and code structure for Tableau?

       

      2.  If not, are there more general resources that could be helpful?

       

      3.  If I choose to learn a programming language, which language most closely mirrors the language / syntax / structure that Tableau uses in its calculated fields?

       

      Thanks,
