Freakalytics Newsletter, May 2012

Thank you for your interest in our newsletter. Please share it with your colleagues and friends that you think can benefit from it.

We are happy to share some great news, Eileen is close to the final release of our upcoming book, “The Accidental Analyst“! Look for training opportunities around the Accidental Analysts soon! Also, if you pre-ordered this book, you will need to reorder it on Amazon in the coming weeks due to changes in the publication channel.

Even more great news, in addition to continuing to teach our in-person Tableau training seminars, Stephen has recently joined Tableau Software as Director of Analytic Product Management. In his role at Tableau, he will help shape the future direction of their products over the coming years.

We always enjoy hearing your thoughts, feedback and ideas- please drop us a line sometime.

Best regards,
