DataKo, Data Analyst and Data Visualization VTuber
DataKo is a data analyst at an engineering company by day and visualizes data as a VTuber, an online creator who uses a virtual avatar, on Twitch (@DataKoStreaming) by night. She began using Tableau in 2019 and found the Community Forums, DataFam Community Jam webinars, and other online resources incredibly helpful in her initial learning of Tableau.
DataKo uses her VTuber alias as an outlet to truly be themselves and create vizzes on topics that interest them, such as anime. By building dashboards on Twitch, their main goal is to reach an audience that may not have a strong relationship with data or realize how much knowledge is really at their fingertips. She hope to empower their viewers, called their “Data Base”, to make more sense of the world through data visualization.
In the near future, DataKo is looking forward to working through her extensive list of pop culture focused dashboards, here are some of their ideas for future vizzes:
- "stock market" style analysis of her Animal Crossing island's turnip-based "Stalk Market"
- analysis of the age of anime protagonists
- toppings used on the specialty pizzas at global locations of Domino's
