There are ‘good’ images and visualizations, and then there are ‘great’ images and visualizations that leave you feeling like you’ve experienced something new.

Join us as Jock Mackinlay, VP, Research & Design at Tableau, walks you through the psychology of data visualization and best practices. This presentation will demonstrate the most effective ways to display different types of data. From choosing the right size, shape, or color, to formatting with line charts or heat maps among so much more. Stimulate your inner creative genius and apply the techniques you learn to enhance how you visualize your data.
Wait, there’s more – data visualization tools must be flexible enough for you to tell any story.

Tableau co-founder, Pat Hanrahan, assisted in the software development at Pixar used to bring some of our favorite visual stories to life with Toy Story, Monsters Inc., and A Bugs Life. Hear from Tableau how the RenderMan API came to be as you visit the temporary PIXAR exhibit at California Science Center.

We look forward to seeing you in Los Angeles!
