One may think that basketball, the Partridge Family, and Seattle street accidents have nothing in common. However, a shared thread between each of these is DATA and the desire to have fun by learning more from the data!
Fanalytics seeks to bring these data-lovers (or data rockstars) together to encourage the continued discussion and presentation of vizzes on the web. In its third installment this year, we had a lot of fun with #data14fanalytics!
Three Presentations from Tableau Public Authors
To kick off the event, we heard from three Tableau Public authors - each passionate about a different type of data. Didn't make it to Fanalytics this year? Don't worry! Each of our three presenters have provided their slides for your enjoyment.
- Troy Heerwagen of walkinginseattle.org showed us how to make discoveries with three different types of data: energy, Seattle traffic accidents and data on his daugher's first year!
- Kyle Biehle of ivorsofa.blogspot.com walked us through how to get personal with your audience along with some of his favorite music and pop culture vizzes.
- Carl Allchin of datajedi.ninja gave us a glimpse into his love for basketball, but more specifically: the San Antonio Spurs.

After being inspired by our three presenters, we challenged the people attending Fanalytics to find a group and create a viz using data about UK billboard chart toppers. Oh and did I mention that we only gave them 45 minutes? After time was up, 8 groups submitted a viz with each group answering a slightly different question.
