In honor of TCC15, I wanted to start a series of Community Appreciation talks for the month of October.
Each day, I will be writing about individuals in our community who go above and beyond to help solve questions and share knowledge.
I believe there are several individuals who dedicate many hours (And sometimes brain cells) to help make our community be so great! And I just want to recognize them for there contributions.
Though I have several people in mind, I don't want this to be solely "MY" appreciation, but the community's. So please feel free to email people who you want to give a BIG Thank You to, OR (If you want to) volunteer to write up on somebody one day this month.
You can reach me anytime at RodyZakovich@gmail.com
My goal is to write one everyday before 2:00 PM EST (I'm not off to good start so far...), so if you want to recognize someone, please let me know as soon as possible.
Ok, now on to some recognition!
To kick off the series, I wanted to recognize an individual who I know has certainly helped out dozens of members in our community, Mr.Jonathan Drummey .
Whenever you see responses from Jonathan, you can tell that he really cares about helping. No matter how complex the question might be, Jonathan is always willing to jump in (And generally, give the correct answer). But, it is not Jonathan's ability to answer complex questions that makes him so great, no...., it is Jonathan's ability to explain complex logic in a way that everyone can understand that is wonderful. His attention to detail is amazing, and one that only comes from someone who truly wants to teach others. I can't even express in words how much I have learned from him, and I'm sure many others can say the same.
I recommend everyone (If you haven't already) check out his blog on Tableau and data visualization.
There are many detailed explanations on how to solve some of the "head-banging" issues we face when working with Tableau.
Also, I just read today that Jonathan has been named a Tableau Zen Master again for 2015-2016! So a big congrats there.
It is for all these things, and more that we say THANK YOU. We appreciate all the hard work and dedication you put in to making this community great!
Be sure to stay tuned for tomorrow's Community Appreciation!
