Tech Talk & HH Tonight @Tableau

Tableau's Product Development team would like to invite you to join us in Seattle on Thursday, June 5th for a night of networking, terrific eats and drinks! Hear from Chris Stolte, Tableau’s Chief Development Officer and Co-Founder, as he demos and speaks about Tableau’s product and plans. After Chris’s tech talk, meet with our team or mix and mingle with others in the local tech community.
Chris Stolte runs all product design, product strategy, and engineering for Tableau Software. Chris’s early career as a database programmer helped him see the problems with existing analytical tools. “I remember writing programs that helped people get data directly in just a few minutes, where they used to wait a few weeks. I was astounded by their responses – they were shocked at being able to get the data so quickly and grateful they could do it themselves. I’ve never forgotten that.” Prior to Tableau, he was a co-founder and vice president of Beeline Systems, a digital mapping startup that was acquired by Vicinity (which was in turn acquired by Microsoft). Chris is a co-inventor on five software patents related to information visualization and has published 12 research papers on information visualization.

    How does this relate to quantified self? Is it mainly a recruiting event for Tableau?

      Good question Robert! The Tech Talk portion of this may be of help for those in QS who are trying to figure out ways of using products like Tableau to display their Quantified data. In addition, several of the QS-Seattle members sent this announcement to us, which indicates to us that other members may be interested. I do think you are right, it's probably mostly a recruiting event for Tableau, but I think it's also an opportunity for Tableau to display what the software can do, and our members may find that valuable.

      I just managed to sign up, so now the event is at least somewhat related to QS :-)

    Just FYI everyone, the event is sold out. If you respond 'yes' to the Meetup invite here, it doesn't automatically mean you get in. I'm not saying they won't let more in at the door (I have no idea), but the Eventbrite page states they are sold out.
