I'm so looking forward to the long weekend! Hope you all have fun plans.
A few quick things:
Tableau is running four free half-day training sessions on the 17th and 18th of June. These sound like they may be more geared towards beginner users, but I always learn at least 1 or 2 good tricks even from basic sessions (like the performance evaluation tool!).

Secondly, at the roadshow Nigel talked about the Tableau Customer Conference in Vegas this year. I went to the one in Seattle last year and it was inspiring, educational, and fun. It's really worth going to if you can convince your company to get you there--but if you can't, you could also try entering the Iron Viz Feeder Competition. The winner will receive airfare and accommodations in Las Vegas during the 2015 Tableau Conference, a conference pass, and a spot in the 2015 Iron Viz Competition.
And lastly, we've just posted a mat leave contract role at REA for a Competitive & Marketing Reporting Analyst. They don't mention Tableau in this job description, but I think you could do some really cool stuff in this role with Tableau! This would be a really great position for an analyst who's good at communicating & helping people understand what the underlying data means. Feel free to reach out to me if you've got any questions about the role, or if you are interested in applying.
