AWS has a quick start for Tableau Server. You are still responsible for the cost of the AWS services, but you can look at putting it on the AWS free tier. The Tableau Server software has a free 14 day trial: Tableau Server on AWS - Quick Start
If you only want to explore creating users, workbooks , data sources etc. You can set up a trial of Tableau Online (the cloud based SaaS version of Tableau Server) in about a minute.
You just cant test some admin stuff or the installation itself.
Thanks for your reply.I was also thinking on the same line. But the free setup of AWS is just like a single core machine , not capable enough to host a Tableau Server. So I'm not sure about how much it will cost me to run a server for a week or two.
Ah yes, that's true, but my guess is that Tableau Server will still install and run, even on a seriously underpowered machine. May be enough to give you what you need.
