Dan shares his thoughts from the Minneapolis stop on the Tableau Your Data! 2nd Edition book tour.

The Tableau Your Data! 2nd Edition book tour got started yesterday at Cargill HQ in Hopkins, Minnesota. Cargill is the largest privately-owned company in the world with revenues exceeding $120 billion, and they have over 150,000 employees scattered across 70 countries. Check out the dashboard I built earlier this week to see a Forbes listing visualized with with 200+ of the largest privately-owned companies in the United States.

My talk, “Discovery and Predictive Analytics with Tableau,” was fun. I ran through a bunch of examples that the audience seemed to enjoy and gave away two free copies of the new book to attendees who tweeted something about the talk using #TYD2. You can view the slides from my full presentation below:

In addition to viewing the presentation, you can download all of the example dashboards and data sets I used below:

Next week I’m heading to Houston, Texas, and Montgomery, Alabama. Come and say hello! In the meantime, enjoy a few photos from Minneapolis.
