It's finally here! It's time to kick off our second of three contests that feed into the Iron Viz at the Tableau Conference in Seattle in September.

For the uninitiated, Iron Viz is the ultimate battle of Tableau skills. Three challengers are selected based on contests held through Tableau Public. The challengers will face off head-to-head in a 20-minute viz battle in front of a live audience at the Tableau Conference. This event has continually been one of the favorite events of conference.

We've already chosen our first contestant, John Mathis, in the Elite 8 Sports Viz Contest in March. Now it's time to see if you have what it takes to join him in Viz Stadium!

Our second contest is all about YOU! The theme of this contest is Quantified Self. The QS movement is all about improving your life by self-tracking data and analyzing it to learn about yourself. For this contest, you'll need to create some data about yourself, build a dashboard about it, and submit it. If you need some inspiration, check out the interesting pattern I found in my music listening.

The submission period is open now and we will be accepting submissions through May 26th. Get more information and submit your viz here. Good luck! The lucky winner will win a free trip to Seattle for the 2014 Tableau Conference, featuring keynote speaker, Neil deGrasse Tyson.
