Presenting at Tableau’s Customer Conference 2014!
Update: The video is now available
As previously mentioned when rebranding this blog about more general BI topics, I’m excited to announce that I’ll be presenting at Tableau’s Customer Conference this September with my colleague, and fellow blogger, Andy Kriebel. I humbly say that Andy is to Tableau as I am to MicroStrategy, and having the chance to work with him for the last two years at Facebook has been an incredible treat. In addition to Andy and myself, our entire Facebook Data Viz team will be in attendance and everyone is contributing topics to this presentation.
Moving Fast and Counting Things at Facebook: Doing Tableau the Hacker Way
“The Hacker Way is an approach to building that involves continuous improvement and iteration. Hackers believe that something can always be better, and that nothing is ever complete. They just have to go fix it — often in the face of people who say it’s impossible or are content with the status quo.” – Mark Zuckerberg
I’ve always subscribed to The Hacker Way mentality even before I’d seen it put so eloquently by Mark. This is how we treat every problem, every day at Facebook, and our talented team has come up with some truly incredible things around Tableau that we’re really excited to share. We’ll probably share a few teasers leading up to the big day, but we’re saving all of the great stuff off of our blogs until then. The presentation will be packed with entertainment, laughs and wow moments. I promise no matter what your experience level is with Tableau, we have things you’ve never seen before.
And of course as is our style, everything will be fully documented on our blogs immediately following the presentation, so there’s no need to take notes (we won’t get into too many details during the show anyway), so you can just sit back and enjoy the performance. All tools and scripts we show will be fully open sourced (for real this time!) and we may even have a few tshirts to share 😉
Tableau’s Customer Conference 2014 is September 8-12 in Seattle, WA. (register)
If you’ve never been, it’s a truly remarkable experience with world class speakers including the incredible Hans Rosling this year. The keynotes and sessions echo the community’s passion for data, visualization, storytelling and analyses, and have something for everybody, even if you’re not actually a Tableau user.
