Best of the Tableau Web... November 2014
In my day job, I’m the customer story writer for Tableau. That means I spend most of my time hearing from customers across the globe about how they use Tableau.
One of my favorite things to hear about is how a customer went from their first trial download to becoming an experienced Tableau jockey. Almost every single customer mentions “the Tableau community” as a key part of this journey.

From the forums to Twitter to the Reddit /r/tableau subgroup—the Tableau community is absolutely filled with people ready, willing, and able to help other users. It’s something I got to see for myself this month as I read through dozens of thoughtful, insightful—and above all, helpful!—entries.
