Last year was huge for “Tableau Your Data!” author, Dan Murray. With the book picking up steam across the world, he spent a good chunk of his time on the road for several book tour stops across the US and Europe. Oh, and let’s not forget that he presented at the Tableau Conference and was named into the latest class of Tableau Zen Masters. Add in all the other conferences and data viz competitions in which he was a judge or presenter, and 2014 was easily one of his biggest years in data.

Breakfast with Hans Rosling and other Zen Masters in Seattle.
