Welcome to the Weekly Digest! We are only 40 days out from TC17 and I am incredibly excited to meet so many of our amazing community members at my first Tableau Conference! Here is a link to register if you haven't had a chance to yet. I will be working with the community team, and supporting a couple Data + Women sessions, but since this will be my first trip to Las Vegas in about a decade I thought it would be fun to see what great vizzes are out on Tableau Public around the "Entertainment Capital of the World!"


Ahead of the 2015 conference Branden Fulton created this "The Fabulous Las Vegas" viz including how blackjack and baccarat had gone head to head to get the top spot in table game revenue. Do you know of any other great vizzes or data sets on Las Vegas? Please share in the comments below!




Ahead of this year's conference Tableau Zen Master Andy Kriebel is helping to support vegans and vegetarians with his "Viva Las Vegans!" viz, which was an Iron Viz entry. It's incredibly practical and useful - and has already been optimized for mobile viewing. Nice work Andy!




+ Our fearless community support lead Patrick Van Der Hyde is out in the great wide open hiking the John Muir Trail! If you would like to learn more about America's National Parks check out this great viz from Tableau Public Ambassador Pablo Gomez: The National Parks Have Never Been More Popular. With data from the National Park Service, Pablo looks at visitor data over the last 100 years. Download the workbook data and see what you can find!






Congratulations to community members Aishwarya Sawant, yasuhiko nakamura and James Geron for each achieving the Calc Contributor badge!  This badge mark is received after you create a document in the Calculation Reference Library. This is a huge asset in the Tableau Community and is a benefit for all Tableau users! Thank you
