Konstantin Weis, Senior Data Technology Consultant at Keyrus

New York, USA

Konstantin Weis is a Senior Data Technology Consultant at Keyrus. Konstantin began using Tableau through his graduate studies at Fordham University and continued to sharpen his skills through YouTube tutorials and blogs. Later, he continued learning Tableau at an internship and through the Tableau Forums, which is now one of the ways that he stays most active in the Tableau Community. 

Konstantin loves that the Tableau Forums help sharpen his Tableau skills and solve complex problems. The Forums are also a way for Konstantin to give back to those just beginning their Tableau journey. His formula for answering questions includes outlining his steps and also including additional information—rather than just a quick solution, people can gain context to help them apply the tips in the future. 

Another way Konstantin stays connected is through the New York City Tableau User Group. After attending various User Group meetings as a listener, he got involved and now helps organize meetings and speaks at events. 

Connect with Konstantin on Linkedin, Tableau Public, the Tableau Forums, and through the New York City Tableau User Group
