Tableau Customer Conference 2011

This week was our Tableau Customer Conference at the Encore Hotel in Las Vegas! I actually arrived in Vegas last Friday with my team and it was our job to prepare over 700 laptops and a handful of servers for use at the conference. Other than that our jobs were to assist customers, be courteous, and have a little fun.

The first couple days were a bit grueling, but after that things were pretty great!

Some highlights:

-an amazing dinner at Lawry’s The Prime Rib
-watching chicks in borrowed bikinis (yes, borrowed) riding a mechanical bull at Gilley’s
-seeing our CEO up on stage during his keynote and feeling energized and excited to be part of Tableau

And finally…


We rented out the entire SX beach club and it was insane! Not only were they serving 70-year-old tequila from a tequila only bar, but there was also a cigar bar where you could select a cigar and a guy would cut and light it for you! Customers were having a blast, Tableau was having a blast and–from what I can tell–no one was hurt or got into trouble.

The second part of that night was taking a pimped out party bus to a club with some coworkers and dancing the night away…literally, I didn’t make it back to my room until 4:30am. Unfortunately I had a nine o’clock flight to catch, so I didn’t get much sleep.

Overall a great time, but I’m glad to be home!
