Seattle is one of my favorite cities in the world. Great coffee, big mountains and wonderful people who also know tech! Thanks to Anthony Gould for organizing the event. I really loved his presentation on the audience. SEATUG creates a dashboard of all meeting attendees and surveys the group for their self-reported skill level (beginner, intermediate and advanced). They track who signs-up, no shows and when people arrive for meetings. Then, they present those details in a Tableau dashboard at the start of the meeting. It’s always fun speaking in Seattle, and the reception afterwards was great fun with some good conversation. I also had the opportunity to introduce Dick Holm (who was my technical editor for the 2nd edition) during the speech.

Dick sent me a detailed critical evaluation of the 1st edition of Tableau Your Data! It was very helpful and he had obviously taken a lot of time to layout areas that the book could be improved. That’s why I asked him to edit the 2nd edition. He did a great job and made the end product better. Thank you Dick!
