    If you plan to attend tableau conf at Seattle in sept, suggest you at least reserve a hotel now as I just found out that good hotels nearby are filled up quickly.

    That was a really good meeting. Learned lots and enjoyed it. I have a suggestion for another session - a little bit different - about principles and practices for optimal visual communication of data - I studied for a few days with Stephen Few on this, and have delivered this presentation to quite a few audiences now. Think of it as how to make Tableau as friendly as possible for your brain. I'd need 20 min - half hour for this, if you are interested.

    Upcoming in Tableau 8.2
    Notice the MAC version as I mentioned last night ;-)
    I am currently testing Tableau 8.2 BETA v4 but I don't have a MAC. If you need beta access let me know and I can forward info to access and download.

    Desktop Enhancements
    Tableau version 8.2 will include many new capabilities across the Tableau product line. Highlights in the coming release include a Mac OS version of Tableau Desktop; Story Points for interactive, data-driven storytelling; a more visual connection experience, including data previews and improved ways to define data table joins; updated maps; and many more improvements to data connectivity, Tableau Server, and all the products.

    Hi Stephane!

    I know last time I mentioned that I would go over some environmental stats based on studies we did in cell sites...If possible I would like to cover our Trouble Ticket views in Tableau instead for this session as I think users will be able to pick-up more valuable info from that. Perhaps if we have extra time or during another session I could cover environmental info.
