I have three cool, quick things to share with y'all today and I hope you guys enjoy.
The first thing is this super awesome fun viz I did on the
Check out the viz below!
So here's the second fun thing - how do I make something like this? This is all about how do I get an idea from my head to become a viz on the screen, and for me, I've learned a big important middle step - The Sketch.
It takes about 10 minutes, and I always do it in pencil, but it really allows you to quickly take an idea and see it. And when you can see, you can improve it (which is something I know you believe because you do data visualization).
So here's the sketch I did for this viz. It's cool to see the design work out this well in reality. If you're not currently doing a little bit of pre-viz design, you should consider giving it a shot. I've found that it actually makes the project take less total time on average, because you already have a vision of where you're heading.
The last thing (but first in my heart :) is a personal note that Baby Davis #2 was born a week and a half ago. Mama and Baby are doing great and we are incredibly blessed with how smoothly everything went.
I want to thank the Tableau Community who sent lovely congratulatory tweets from all across the world. It was really cool and I was very touched. And don't be surprised if you see a Baby Davis viz coming soon.
If you have a comment, I'd love to hear it. Thanks for checking it out!
