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!!!

    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:

Educational Backgrounds of Data Industry Professionals

As some of you may know, I co-founded a group in the Bay Area for women who work in the data industry with Chloe Tseng back in March. These past 8 months have been extremely rewarding for me. Not only have I been sharpening my organizing and community building skills but I've built an amazing network of friendship and support. 

One thing that continually will come up in our conversations is the idea of "non-traditional" vs. "traditional" educational backgrounds. "Traditional" referring to professionals who have a STEM (i.e. Computer Science, Statistics, Math, etc.) background versus those of us who have a degree in a liberal arts field (i.e. Communications, Business, PoliSci, etc.). It's really interesting to see how this manifests in the types of struggles they face. Speaking personally, I studied Political Science and had a few non-data jobs before entering this space. I've always felt a bit behind from peers who have STEM backgrounds which c…
