Want to know more about the session content at TC14? Now you can see it for yourself in Tableau. Today, we're making available the raw data sets of our session information, so you can visualize the sessions exactly the way you want to see them. (Of course, you can always find the schedule visualized as the TC14 website.)
When Tableau user Dan Rullo actually scraped the conference website so he could visualize this data in Tableau, we decided we ought to make this process easier for our customers. (Thanks Dan! Also, sorry Dan!)
An important disclaimer: Session information is subject to change at any time. When you download the raw data files, you'll be getting the most current information available, along with a timestamp. The "single source of truth" is always the TC14 website. We strongly recommend including a similar disclaimer in any session visualizations that you plan to distribute or share on Public.
We're making 4 files available. You can join them all on session ID.
