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.
In no particular order, here are the top 5 swag (swags?) I picked up at Tableau Conference 2017.
① Interworks Viz Socks
In a world of suit and ties, socks can be a great way to show off some pizazz while remaining professional. I wish I had grabbed 6 more pairs because I can see myself wearing these every day of the week!
② Pluralsight Fidget Cube
That didn't take long. Within a year of invention, fidget cubes are now officially branded swag. Pluralsight's fidget cubes are perfect for mindlessly fidgeting around while thinking through your next great visualization.
③ Data Sleep Mask
This was a surprise from the Tableau Partner Summit on Monday. Tableau was kind enough to provide its partners with a TC17 Rally Pack that contained cool, yet practical swag like this to help make sure they were able to fully recover each night of the conference.
④ VizItPhilly Koozie
⑤ "We Are Data People" Pennants
These small felt pennants are perfect for selfies and are a great way of reminding your coworkers that you are in fact a real data person.
*Bonus - Mini Speech Bubble Whiteboard
Another item in the Tableau Partner swag bag - a miniature whiteboard version of the large speech bubbles with fun data phrases that are seen in about 80% of Tableau users' Twitter avatars.
