On Wednesday on the main stage at TCC a select and special group of people walked across the stage. They are the first class of Tableau Zen Masters, members of the community who are masters of Tableau and of the principles of information design, teachers to others and innovators. And they capture the spirit of questioning and helping that is at the heart of the Tableau community.
Who are these extraordinary people? Glad you asked.
Tableau Zen Masters will have access to the Tableau dev team and other people within Tableau. They get gifts and schwag. And they are recognized as Zen Master in the Tableau community and can use the title in professional profiles and their resume, marking them as some of the best in the world at working with data and information design.
Andy Cotgreave, who has long been a champion of the idea of honoring our highest-contributing community members, did the presentation. He outlined the program and its benefits, then introduced each of the Zen Masters. And then he said, “What do we ask of you in return? Just keep on being amazing.”Tableau Zen Masters: From every single person that you have helped or inspired, thank you for your immense contributions to the Tableau Community.
