Tableau Conference 2015 Told in Selfies


Tableau Conference 2015 Told in Selfies

by Anthony Ball

Tableau Conference 2015 officially ended a little over a week ago, and I’m already missing Vegas and all my fellow InterWorkers. Fortunately, I took plenty of pictures to relive the conference in all its glory. If you know me, then you know that my selfie game is on fleek. Also, I’m pretty much everywhere. So, what better way for me to share my journey than by sharing it exclusively with selfies. Enjoy!

Above: THE Charlie Sanders and I arriving at the IW booth after flying in from San Francisco and Chicago.

Above: One of my selfies on stage for 10,000 fellow data nerds to see. No big deal, whatever.

Above: Dr. Ashley Eadon and I are about to geek out on some physics with Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson. Only at #data15 can you walk into a crowd of fellow nerds, beer in hand, and watch your geek hero give a keynote about science while thousands of people applaud.

Above: Kate Treadwell had a moment to stop by and say hello to marketing queen Jenny Parnell and I before her session with Princeton University.

Above: The CEO of our misfit crew (Behfar Jahanshahi) had a moment to stop by and take a selfie before going back to doing all the things, everywhere.

Above: Best People, Best Clients and Best Wine – thanks to James Wright, full-time principal consultant and sommelier.

Above: We could take an Uber, but we’re all very environmentally conscious; so we limo’d instead.

Above: The always fabulous Katie Fontenot working on her data duck face. For science.

Above: We let Dan Murray, author of Tableau Your Data! 2nd Edition, out of the Dungeon Fungeon to shake hands and see a little sunlight before the release.

Above: Data Night Out with Charlie Sanders. See that selfie stick in the background? Amateurs. 

Above: Some of the IW family, including newly appointed Tableau Zen Master Robert Rouse, during Data Night Out.

Above: Brad Fair reacting in the background because he was told there would be punch and pie at Data Night Out. There was no punch and pie.

Above: 4:30 a.m. Las Vegas. If there’s one thing I love about my fellow nerds, it’s that in between vizzing, ETLing, scoping and training, we know how to have a good time … and look good while doing it. 

Above: Data genius Mitch Bond flew in from Portland to join in the shenanigans.

Above: Data15 is over at this point, so we kicked off our three day after party with some Thai food and a big ‘ole side of love. And wine … so much wine.
