There are many rules and guidelines around dataviz. Everyone knows the rules, but not necessarily the origins and the logic behind them. What started out as a guideline becomes a rule blindly followed without understanding why. Over time, these rules become mantras and doctrine that people follow religiously, but their origins have been lost and are sometimes unwarranted. This Tableau Zen Master session aims to explore the myths surrounding dataviz and look for the truth behind them. In this session we will explore, dissect, and either bust or confirm myths such as: "Pie Charts are Evil" "Red and Green should never be used" "You should never truncate the y-axis"
