    Next San Diego Tableau User's Group Meeting - November 7th, 2013 from 4-6:15pm

    Matt Shoemaker

      We have an excellent addition to next week's San Diego Tableau User Group meeting. Former Google Cloud Platform project manager Michael Manoocheehri will be talking about the Data Sensing Lab project conducted at Google I/O earlier this year. In this experiment, Tableau was used to display the results of over 400 sensors that were placed around Moscone Center during the 3-day conference.


      This is a great opportunity to network with Michael and learn more about Google Compute Engine, Google BigQuery, and the rest of the Google Cloud Platform. Michael is currently leading a new venture with the goal of making it simple to process enormous data sets in the cloud and he would love to hear about your big data use cases and pain points.


      Tableau super-user Ben Sullins (www.bensullins.com) of Mozilla will be giving an excellent presentation on using Tableau with the leading-edge big data engines Google BigQuery and Amazon Redshift. You can find his Tableau training videos at http://pluralsight.com/training/Authors/Details/ben-sullins


      David Forman and Matt Shoemaker of Interactions Marketing will be presenting on a big data project that we did earlier this year using Tableau with Google BigQuery. In addition to our big data use-case, we'll also be touching on our general cloud migration strategy and recounting some of the best practices we learned along the way.
