Speaker(s): Larry Clark, Ben Lower

Dashboard Extensions enable Tableau to do new things and become even more powerful. In this session, we will introduce what extensions are and talk about how you can start developing your own. We’ll also give lots of demos that show the breadth of use cases for extensions by taking action on an insight discovered, adding new functionality to dashboard, implementing custom write-back, and more. We will also cover the newest features available to extensions developers (Sandboxed Extensions) and will talk about security considerations that you and your organization will want to make when choosing to deploy extensions. While this is a developer-track session, we will only cover programming concepts at a high-level (we will point to other sessions that will go deeper into how to write your own extension).
