Ludovic Tavernier, Senior Data Analyst and Data Visualization Specialist at Ledger
Ludovic Tavernier is a Senior Data Analyst and Data Visualization Specialist at Ledger. He stays active in the Tableau Community by participating in community projects, such as Makeover Monday, publishing vizzes on Tableau Public, and sharing tips on Twitter.
After getting started with Tableau 8 years ago, Ludovic began using Tableau Public as a learning tool to develop his skills and portfolio. He was introduced to the community through his learning journey as he was able to easily get answers to his questions through Linkedin and Twitter.
Now, Ludovic’s biggest contribution to the community is sharing weekly Tableau Tips on Twitter. The initiative, called #BigLittleTips, aims to highlight features and address different issues that users may face. Check out Ludovic and his partner’s Medium article that wraps up all of the tips that have been shared so far.
Ludovic is also involved with the DataSuperStar community project, a competition for the best business dashboards, where he participates as a judge. He also competed in Tableau’s Iron Viz competition and was a finalist.
