We will officially announce and congratulate the Zen Masters during Hannah Fry's keynote on Thursday, Oct. 22. Be sure to cheer them on.

Go to the Community Meetup

Join us for a meetup of all Tableau Community members on Wednesday, Oct. 21 at 12:45 p.m. In addition to the Zen Masters, you can also meet our Community and Social Ambassadors. Find out what it takes to become a Zen Master, or how to start a User Group, or how to get active on social media. Click here for meetup details.

Look Out for Zen Master Badges/T-Shirts

The Zen Masters will have special badges and T-shirts. If you see a Zen Master, say hi! Or take a selfie and post it to Twitter or Instagram using the hashtag #ZenMasterAndMe.

We hope you enjoy following and learning from the Zen Masters. Could YOU be one of our Zen Masters next year?
