I’m thrilled to report that registrations are starting to pour in for the 2009 Tableau Customer Conference we’re hosting July 20-23rd at the brand new Hyatt at Olive 8 here in Seattle. For those of you who missed last year’s sold-out event, this conference is a must-attend and a unique opportunity to listen and learn from some of the industry’s brightest minds, data visualization experts, and successful customer champions.
Andy Kriebel from Coca-Cola Enterprises said it best, posting to our LinkedIn group, “I sure don’t want to miss it. Last year’s conference was terrific.” This year we’ve got even more in the works with plans to spotlight breakthrough visual analysis trends and technologies, unveil new products, features, and capabilities.
Some cool additions to this year’s conference include Stephen Few’s popular full-day Visual Data Analysis seminar and the first ever Tableau Certification training - both are pre-conference workshops, and better networking opportunities for you to connect with fellow data geeks and viz fanatics. With all the interest in training at last year’s conference, we are expanding the hands-on training sessions to 2-hours sessions chock full of guided learning in the best classroom-style facility we could round up.
not to miss keynotes and general sessions
Industry luminaries will keynote the event including Stephen Few, founder and principal of Perceptual Edge and 20-year business intelligence industry veteran, and Garr Reynolds, author of the popular book and presentation blog Presentation Zen, They'll be joined by fellow keynoters Tableau CEO, Christian Chabot, and Stanford Professor Pat Hanrahan. Also back is Tableau VP of Engineering, Chris Stolte, and his crew of witty devs for round two of Developers on Stage, one of last year's most popular sessions.
