Data Viz Done Right

My agenda for #TCCEU13. Did I mention we’re hiring?

#TCCEU13 is now nearly upon us.  I have two primary objectives for this conference (in this order):

  1. Find a BI Engineer.  We’re actively look for a BI Engineer to work out of our Dublin office.  This person will be the first BI Engineer in our Dublin office, so you’ll have a ton of freedom to make the job what you want it to be and to build the team there.
  2. I’ll be speaking along with my colleague Namit Raisurana.  Come see our session in the Westminster Ballroom at 11:30 on Wednesday.  It looks like Tableau learned from #TCC13 in San Diego and moved Facebook to the big room.  The crowd better turn out.  We have swag to give away.

Similar to all previous Tableau conferences, it’s hard to decide which sessions to attend because there are so many great topics and speakers.  I’m shooting for:

Tuesday
* 9:15-10:45 – Keynote (Christian Chabot and Chris Stolte)
* 11:00-12:00 - Targeted Marketing: Turning Visa Data into Actionable Marketing Insights (Simon Gatenby, Visa)
* 12:30-1:10 – Rapid Fire Tips & Tricks (I’m debating presenting something)
* 1:15-2:15 - Show Me the Money: Data and its Visualisation, Post-Financial Crisis (David Bholat, Bank of England)
* 2:30-3:30 - Genomes, Tableau and Huge Data at the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute (Matt Francis, Welcome Trust Sanger Institute)
* 3:40-3:50 – Rapid Fire Tips & Tricks: When is PowerPoint Tableau and When is Tableau PowerPoint (Craig Bloodworth, Zen Master, The Information Lab)
* 4:00-5:00 - Exploring Data, Generating Insight & Driving Action at Barclays (Carl Allchin, Peter Gilks and Lee Mooney, Barclays)

Wednesday
* 9:00-10:00 - Keynote: How Data Intake is Like Dietary Nutritional Consumption (JP Rangaswami, salesforce.com)
* 10:15-11:15 - Getting From Data to Decisions: Decreasing Time to Capability at Cisco (Dan Murray, Interworks; Paul Laza, Cisco; Rob Higgins, Cisco)
* 11:30-12:30 - Creating a Culture of Data at Facebook (Andy Kriebel and Namit Raisurana, Facebook)
* 12:30-1:10 – Rapid Fire Tips & Tricks
* 1:45-2:45 - Keynote: Future Global Trends: A Fact-Based View (Hans Rosling)

If you’re going to the conference, come find me…especially if you’re interested in talking about coming to work at Facebook.  Find me on Facebook or Twitter and let’s grab a drink.
