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. 



Ali Agah, Senior Operations Data Analyst
London, United Kingdom

Ali Agah is a Senior Operations Data Analyst. He got started with Tableau when he was looking for a job as a consultant in the data world and leveraged blogs, YouTube content, and connecting with members of the DataFam to learn Tableau. However, despite the breadth of resources available, Ali says that his favorite is Tableau Public because of the inspiring content that others share and because he is able to test his own skills through the platform. Being able to receive feedback and share his work has been instrumental in his learning development. 

Community projects such as Makeover Monday and Workout Wednesday have been great sources of inspiration for the vizzes Ali publishes on Tableau Public. He appreciates being able to see the different ways that people approach creating vizzes with the same dataset and he enjoys being able to apply new learnings to the vizzes he creates. 

Connect with Ali on Linkedin, X, and Tableau Public.
