Welcome! Dig into this week's DataFam Roundup—a weekly blog that brings together community content all in one post. As always, we invite you to send us your content—and the DataFam content from your peers that have inspired you! Find the content submission form here.

Community Highlight

To recognize new and consistent Tableau contributors—we’re excited to have a section within the weekly DataFam Roundup called the Tableau Community Highlight. Find out how to get involved. 

Ana Milana

Ana Milana, Data Visualization Developer

London, United Kingdom

Ana Milana is a Data Visualization Developer. She stays involved in the Tableau Community as a member of the London Tableau User Group, publishing vizzes on Tableau Public, and sharing her knowledge on her blog

After finding herself answering the same questions and offering the same advice repeatedly, Ana decided to create a place where she could share her wisdom and direct people to it. Her blog has allowed her to share previous work and learnings, but also use it as a place to share inspirational and useful content focused on Data & Technology learning and Women Empowerment (e.g. tutorials, course & book recommendations, and Tableau dashboards). Ana also occasionally publishes other content such as book reviews and digital art. 

Ana recently worked with a Peruvian non-profit organization to build an Impact Metrics dashboard on Tableau Public that is aimed at increasing visibility to the general public, stakeholders and institutions alike. In the future, she hopes to take on more projects that give her the opportunity to work with non-profit organizations and charities. 

In addition to sharing her knowledge online, Ana is in the process of organizing a Tableau Basics Workshop, set to be held later this year. She hopes to channel her passions for teaching and meeting and talking with people through her workshop. 

Connect with Ana on Twitter, Tableau Public, and on her blog.
