DataFam Roundup: March 27-31, 2023
Welcome! Dig into this week's DataFam Roundup—a weekly blog that brings together community content all in one post. As always, we invite you to send us your content—and the DataFam content from your peers that have inspired you! Find the content submission form here.
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.
Louis Yu, Data Visualization Lead, Data & AI at 2K Games
Louis Yu is the Data Visualization Lead of Data & AI at 2K Games, co-lead of the Singapore Tableau User Group, and co-lead of the #GamesNightViz community project. In addition, Louis and his team at work run an internal forum called Knights of the Pie Table, similar to a Tableau User Group, where they host Tableau Data Doctor sessions, and share standardized design principles, best practices, and what's new in the data viz community.
Louis began his Tableau journey through a graduate program at the Maryland Institute College of Art. He applied skills from the classroom to vizzes on topics that interest him, such as video games and Marvel, and published them on Tableau Public, which was his door into the Tableau Community. Some vizzes Louis has published pertaining to his interests:
- Bringing back the CHARM to Baltimore (Louis’s very first #VOTD!)
- The Coffee World
- The Superhero Race
- So you're a parent working from home?
- Dark Origins of Disney Princesses
- Gerrymandering in a Post-Apocalyptic World
Apart from his other involvements in the community, Louis has stayed active by joining community projects such as #MakeoverMonday, taking part in IronViz (and placing in the top 15 this year!), attending Tableau Conference, and interacting with the DataFam on Twitter.
Next for Louis is a blog series that he plans to start soon, refactoring his work for 2K's Knights of the Pie Table and the Singapore TUG, and adding content that will go behind the scenes of some of the vizzes he has created. He is also working with his co-leads to plan a second season of #GameNightsViz.

ProjectHealthViz - Impact of Endometriosis on in Vitro Fertilization Outcomes – Data set from a research paper and aims to highlight the invisible struggle many women with endometriosis face when trying to get pregnant.
