The countdown has begun to our—and, we assume, your—favorite time of year: Tableau Conference. This year’s Conference comes with a twist—it’s 100% virtual. And along with it comes the most exciting event in the world of competitive vizzing—Iron Viz. That’s right. Iron Viz is back for 2020 with our biggest prizes yet.
This powerful data competition ignites and showcases the power of the Tableau Community, giving you the opportunity to interact with data rockstars from around the world. Trust us when we tell you it is something you must see to truly understand. The theme for this year’s Iron Viz qualifier contest was health and wellness data—which has been top of mind for many of us—and we received a record number of entries. Explore each one in this recent Tableau Public blog post. The finalists of this year’s qualifier contest, Alex Jones, Christian Felix and Simon Beaumont will advance to the virtual Iron Viz Championship.
