Bummed that I missed it... My wife had a baby--our first, so figured I'd better not miss that!
Is there a good write-up somewhere of all the coming new features for 8.0?
My supervisor went and said it was a great conference--as good as last year's, which was terrific...
I was bummed last year, couldn't attend (too new). But of course Mark, you understand "baby" is more important than..... well, anything else! Congrates!
Hope to see you in DC next year.
They should have (or will soon) put up the keynote talks online. The first keynote where the founders talked gave a great set of demos on the new features. I'm not exactly sure where you can find the videos, but this blog post has a summary of the new features: http://www.tableausoftware.com/about/blog/2012/11/keynote-christian-chabot-chris-stolte-19767
Not that there's anything wrong with this friendly banter, but what does it have to do with maps and geocoding? If I'm looking for answers or insights on these topics, this series of exchanges is providing zero useful content.
In my blog post I had discussed through dynamic re-projection of datums using calculated fields, heirarchies of shapefiles, and three dimensional representation of data.
At the conference, I also spoke to one of the dev team about ESRI's push towards BI (there was announcement this week about ESRI <-> Cognos) and location analysis.
