Meet Our Tableau TEN-ured Community Members!

By Michelle Wallace 2016/08/16

There's something special about the number ten. Sure, it's only got one more digit than nine, but that digit makes a world of difference.

Tableau 10 is big! It's an exciting milestone for us, and we couldn't have gotten there without you, our incredible community.

To celebrate, we’d like to highlight some of the important milestones that are happening all around the Tableau community. We chatted with 16 community members who are each celebrating an important milestone in his or her Tableau journey.

They are, as we like to say, Tableau TEN-ured! And we’re excited to share their stories.
