Usability Testing Tableau Dashboards

Since it's Valentine's week, Roshni Gohil (MIT) is going to present on something that she <3s ("hearts"): seeing users actually interact with dashboards to learn how we can make our data products more usable. Learn about a technique called usability testing, which is widely used in web and application development, and see how it can be applied to Tableau dashboards.
