Hello everyone and happy Monday! It's our Global Sales Kick-off week here at Tableau which means lots of trainings, lots of meetings, lots of catching up, and (of course) lots of brews! Combine that with my flight back from Boston last night and there's a good chance I might look like this by the end of the week:

 

BUT there's plenty of exciting happenings around the Community so let's dive-in!

 

Announcements

Recognition

I want to give some long overdue praise for Matt Coles. Matt helps keep our own Tableau Server instances running and meeting demand at Tableau, and still somehow finds time to create amazing content, answer questions, and build useful tools. Not only is he an expert in every sense of the word, he's a great human and we're lucky to have him. Thanks for everything Matt!
