Tableau Software: Rewriting the Story of Data Visualization

Feeling like a Storyteller fan

Storyteller

When I was a kid, I sat every afternoon, exactly to 6:00 PM a clock to watch another episode of a great serie created by Jim Hanson in 1988 called: “The Storyteller”, where an old man (John Hurt) and his funny talking dog (Brian Henson) recreated the best fabbles around the world, and I just saw and heard that with a great entertainment, that time passed quickly, and I began to count hours to see the next chapter in the next day. John’s voice was very quite and full of kindness, and every child in that time loves all stories told by the great storyteller.

You should be wondering why I began in this way. That has a single answer: I get the same feeling when I see a great infographic or a data visualization created with great tools like R in combination with ggplot2, the great matplotlib library from Python, or the amazing Tableau platform, because for me, the work of a Data Scientist is just one:

“To tell a great story behind numbers and facts with annoying graphics to say more than simple words and sofisticated statistics methods. To make it simple: You have to be a great Storyteller like John.”

But how do you do that quicker and easier? How do you build great data visualization in matters of seconds? Like I wrote before: Time, united to your mind, are the most important resources that you have, and you have to use them wisely, so I have an answer for you, my friend: Use Tableau Software. So, you should be wondering the 1 million question: WHY? Keep reading. Continue reading “Tableau Software: Rewriting the Story of Data Visualization”

Revolution for your resumé

re.vu or vizualize.me

Reading infosthetics, one of the primary blogs about data visualization, infographics, and data analysis, I had the pleasure to meet a amazing service called re.vu.

re.vu, in simple words is a rival for another similar service called vizualize.me, but, at least for me, with more cool features to test and to see, which the main objetive of them, is to visualize your LinkedIn profile in a very beautiful way.

But you should be wondered why I think that re.vu has a better approach than vizualize.me. Ok, here are my thoughts about this:

  • with re.vu, you can add more information to in forms of layers, to support your work. There are many examples: “interest over time”, “job duties”, “vital stats”
  • Another cool feature is the dashboard, the “analytic tool” of the infographic page

 

re.vu’s development team is planing to add premium accounts, so stay tune. It’s awesome to see where these new kind of businesses, where behind an idea, can be implemented a successful empire. You can build your own profile, look the mine

Happy Hacking !!!
