Top 16 Things to do in Austin, TX for #TC16!

After attending the 2015 Tableau Conference, I partnered with Aaron (@VeniVidiVizi) on a new project called Data Dare. The idea was to challenge each other throughout this year so that we can keep the momentum from the conference going and continue to better our practice and engage with the Tableau community. We flipped a coin and I got the first dare. Aaron dared me to create an Austin, TX tourism guide in honor of Tableau Conference 2016!

See all the details on how I made it and what I dared Aaron to do at data-dare.com!!!

  1. The UFC is back in Las Vegas this weekend for a big UFC 209 event, and the promotion has rolled out its “Embedded” treatment for a preview.

    It's finally here, namely, UFC 209. But more than that, it feels like the first big fight week week of the year. That's a little bizarre because this.

Using Python for Sentiment Analysis in Tableau

This weeks Makeover Monday's data set was the Top 100 Song's Lyrics. After just returning from Tableau's annual conference and being eager to try their new feature, TabPy, this seemed like the perfect opportunity to test it out. In this blog post, I'm going to offer a step-by-step guide on how I did this. If you haven't used Python before, have no fear - this is definitely achievable for novices - read on! 

For some context before I begin, I have limited experience with Python. I recently completed a challenging but great course through edX that I'd highly recommend if you are looking for foundational knowledge - Introduction to Computer Science and Programming Using Python. The syllabus included advanced Python including Classes and thinking about algorithmic complexity. However, to run the analysis I did, it would be helpful to look up and understand at a high level:

#MakeoverMonday: Data Science Degrees and Tile Maps

I have recently been experimenting with what I've seen being referred to as a tile map, grid map or periodic map. NPR did a great write up on traditional choropleth maps, cartograms and tile maps.
Some awesome Tableau folks have also done great tutorials and published these non-traditional map types publically including Brittany Fong, Matt Chambers and Kris Ericson. There are definitely instances where this type of map enhances the data view or enables better flow and certainly some where it won't be suitable (for example, showing data at the county level among others - example).

I came into this field from a non-traditional background like many others. There's definitely an emergence of new or rebranded data science degree and certificate programs. I was excited when I came across Dan Murray's article on the Interworks Blog that used data and an awesome tableau visualization to show programs throughout the U.S. Since I came across this at the same time that I was experi…

The Story Behind my Viz of the Day on AirBnB

It's Saturday October 17th, two days before the 2015 Tableau Conference in Las Vegas. I'm not packed, I haven't picked all the sessions I want to attend yet and I realize my Tableau vizzing has been...well...not existent the last couple of months. The dashboards I made with my team were in production and I started on a new project at work focused on data migration and architecture, less so on visualization (for now). I decided I needed to grease the wheels and play to get back into Tableau mode. To be honest, I didn't have a particular question in mind or a story I wanted to tell. I just wanted a data set that required minimal prep work so that I could get to vizzing. I ended up coming across Jewel Loree's data feed on "Inside Airbnb". The source of the data, Inside Airbnb, hosted a collection of Airbnb data for cities around the world. The best part for me was that the data had already been analyzed, cleansed and aggregated where appropriate. Perfect! As…
