On Wednesday, May 18th, Keboola’s Portland and BC team converged in Seattle to host the city’s monthly Tableau User Group with Slalom Consulting. We worked with SeaTUG’s regular hosts and organizers, Slalom Consulting, to put together a full evening of discussion around how to solve complex Tableau data problems using KBC. With 70+ people in attendance, Seattle’s Alexis Hotel was buzzing with excitement!
The night began with Slalom’s very own Anthony Gould, consultant, data nerd and SeaTUG host extraordinaire, welcoming the group and getting everyone riled up for the night’s contest - awarding the attendee who’s SeaTUG related tweet got the most retweets! He showed everyone how we used Keboola Connection (KBC) to track that data and prepared them that this would be updated at the end of the night and prizes distributed!
Anthony passed off the mic to our very own Milan Veverka who got to the heart of the evening’s presentation, explaining how users and attendees can use KBC to solve the complex data problems that would be presented throughout the evening. Throughout the rest of the evening, Milan continued to present topics such as, “When SQL isn’t enough” and you want R or Python to get the results you want, data cleanliness and twitter text enrichment. He shared the stage with Slalom consultant Frank Blau, who presented on a variety of Internet of Things (IoT) topics, including weather data enrichment and working with magnetometer and EKG data.
Throughout the presentation and during the following breakout sessions, the audience was engaged, excited, asking lots of questions and doing a lot of laughing for such a technical presentation! Over the coming weeks, we’ll be releasing some video from the night and sharing more takeaways and results! We loved the experience and look forward to hosting more TUGs around North America!
