PDXaTUG December: #Data15, Tableau Certification, and Tips for Improving Workbook Performance
Join us December 16 from 2:00 to 5:00 PM on the 20th Floor of the Fox Tower in downtown Portland, courtesy of Slalom Consulting
2:00 – Gather and settle in
2:10 – A few words from our sponsor, Slalom Consulting
2:15 – Break into small groups to test out our “Quick Customer Stories” worksheet
For coming meetings, we’d like to feature 2-3 local users talking for 5-10 minutes about how they use Tableau. To this end, we’ve devised a worksheet of questions to help users structure their talks. During this time, we’ll ask you to test it out and see if it sparks interesting conversations.
2:45 – Re-gather and recap which questions led to interesting conversations
3:00 – Conference recap
If you went to #Data15, we want to hear about it! Please come prepared to share:
3:30 – Tableau Certification Q&A
Erica Strachan of Slalom Consulting will chat about her experience becoming certified in Tableau Desktop and will answer as many of your burning questions about certification as she can.
4:00 – Tips for Improving Workbook
Kat Sklar of Perkins & Co will walk through some of the factors that impact Tableau workbook performance, and then demo a few concrete tips for improving your existing workbooks and building new ones with less spinny wheel frustration.
