We are super fortunate to have a great line up for this year's fringe festival being held on July 15th from 10am-5:45pm eastern. But what is the fringe festival? It's a one day virtual conference where we get to hear great content from the community, for the community! And fun fact, it's organized by two women in data, Jen Vaughan and me (the TFF founder).
We are also switching it up this year and are using Zoom (thanks Tableau) for live viewing and recording. Register using this link: https://zoom.us/webinar/register/e07d377513679921c5b9141539e44ee6 and get a reminder for the start of the event. No more individual links to sessions, just come and go as you please. Session recordings will be available on YouTube in approximately one week from the event.
We're going to have some great presentations you won't want to miss. Use the handy dandy viz found here: https://public.tableau.com/shared/RTK3KBKNX?:display_count=yes as your guide.
We're bringing TFF back for another year! Our objective is to share really great Tableau and dataviz content from the community and for the community.
Make plans to join us July 15, 2016!
Are you interested in speaking? Because we had such great speakers last year, we're mixing it up this year and offering short and long sessions of 20 and 45 minutes, respectively. If you've submitted a topic for #data16 but you want to share that or another topic at TFF, please submit your topic! There are no restrictions this year! We'd love to hear from you! If you have any questions, please contact Emily or Jen, the co-organizers.
Topic submissions are due June 3, 2016.
I am way behind on the TFF round-up, but here it is! First, a super huge shout out to Dan Murray and Chuck Hooper as well as our excellent keynote presenters. A big shout out to Jen Vaughan for helping me organize the first TFF. Her efforts truly helped make this a success. In this round-up, I've included the speaker's workbooks/presentations and their YouTube session links. Before you dig into the TFF fun, here's a special announcement...
TFF is coming back in Spring 2016! Interested in speaking? Click here and we'll be in touch as we solidify the date.
We had some really great speakers and if you weren't able to attend live, you're still able to watch through the magic of YouTube. Without further ado...
And Dan's slides...
Emma provided such good information on fonts, this is definitely a must watch talk! Click here to access her workbook that she used during her talk.
Chris's talk was so great! He really showed us how we might be able to push the boundaries of what Tableau is typically used for to create some really striking and useful visualizations! Click here for the link to his workbook.
Alex walked through how aesthetics like color can help people see the data. Click here for Alex's workbook and check out her talk below.
Jen is like a one-stop shop of Tableau knowledge! She's also my co-organizer, a Tableau Social Ambassador, and co-leader of the Seattle TUG, whew! Check out Jen's presentation below.
Carl discussed how his passion helped him learn more about Tableau and have global conversations. Check out his workbook here and his talk below.
Paul shared how he engages his users and his centre of excellence practices he has established. His talk cannot be shared due to sensitive information, but he is aces at responding to questions. You can see his prezi on COE by clicking here.
Chuck shares his journey and why you should be a part of the Tableau community in our final keynote.
So that's it! A big thank you to those who participated, spoke, or provided support! It was truly a joy to see this come to life.
When we say this conference is from the community, for the community, we mean it! We have been super fortunate to have some awesome members of the community that you may or may not have heard of before, but are definitely worth tuning in to. First, major thanks to Franca Higginbotham of Data Brains for designing some kickass artwork, right? And Jen Vaughan for helping me shepherd this idea along and for designing a cool viz to announce our speakers. I am so excited to hear from Dan Murray, Emma Whyte, Chris DeMartini, Alex Duke, Jen, Paul Banoub, Carl Allchin, and the one and only Chuck Hooper to close it out.

What I love about this viz is that we'll also be posting links for the Google Hangouts on Air for each speaker session in the viz, so that it's a one stop shop for your TFF needs :). So without further ado, click the image below to check out the awesomeness!
