Top Swag at TC17

CAN recently got back from Tableau's 2017 customer conference, affectionally shortened "TC17". I brought back several things from the week in Las Vegas: a couple Tableau tips and tricks, several new connections within the Tableau community, and of course, some swag.

Eleven Nebraska startups that could be the next big thing

Nebraska is not California. Omaha is not San Francisco. This sounds glaringly obvious but sometimes entrepreneurs in the Midwest get caught up in proving that we're the same as any other startup scene in the country. But we're not... and that's okay! It doesn't mean we don't have big ideas here. It doesn't mean there's no tech leadership here. And it certainly doesn't mean you can't build a disruptive tech company here. The Silicon Prairie may not have the same quantity of startups as Silicon Valley, but we have just as much quality. You just have to know where to look.

Python or R - CAN’s Advice on How to Choose

We at CAN have a pretty impressive staff of data scientists. They’ve all got their quirks, that’s for sure. Some like to run in their spare time, some bird watch, some binge watch House of Cards. When it comes to work, however, they have something in common. They work hard, around the clock if they have to, to accomplish projects and put their best foot forward for clients.

From the CAN Vault: History of Predictive Analytics Since 1689

History is a fascination for us at CAN for two reasons. The first is that we find our own history pretty fascinating. Did you know that CAN has been around for 9 years? Pretty cool.
