Happy Monday everyone! We're winding down the last couple days of February and then we're headed into March! Whew! Where have the first two months of this year gone already?

 

March is going to be a great month! It's National Women's month - so we'll be celebrating all the smart women in our community (see below for more). It's St. Patrick's Day in a couple of weeks. I'm in school right now - which means spring break! So many things to look forward to.

 

But let's not get too ahead of ourselves, and let's take a look into what's been going on in the community.

 

Announcements

We're starting a new program in the community where we're working with Tableau Developers to have more of a feedback loop with our community members. Last week, we kicked it off Dev Office Hours with Ben Lower, russellhay, and Tyler Doyle talking about the Tableau Server REST API. If you missed it, you can see the recording here: Ask us anything! (about the Tableau Server Client :D)

 

And this week, we'll be doing another one with Kent Marten - sign up here: Dev Office Hours: Maps and Spatial Data | Tableau Software  Also, let him know the types of questions you'll have ahead of time here: Ask us anything about maps or spatial data in Tableau!

 

As I mentioned above, March is going to be a celebration of the women in our community. We'll be posting content/discussions in the Data + Women group. Feel free to get conversations of your own started! We'll also be having our first ever Data + Women Virtual Tableau User Group | Tableau Software hosted by Brit Cava and Chloe Tseng on March 16th at 9:00 AM. This will be a great event - don't miss it!

 

Do you use TabPy? Well, great news - it now supports Python 3.x and doesn't require Anaconda. It has been released by Bora Beran and can be found on GitHub here: GitHub - tableau/TabPy: Execute Python code on the fly and display results in Tableau visualizations
