Access the channel for more content


It’s been a while since I’ve been here, but I’ returned with exciting news!

In April I was accepted to be one of the speaker at one event dear to my heart: the Women Tech Makers, more specifically the Montreal chapter. I was so excited when I got in!

There’s a little downside: we had technical issues on the day and the audio was not recorded on the live presentation, BUT I SWEAR IT HAPPENED, I HAD WITNESSES!

Anyways, I recorded a video, with the same content of the talk, and you can watch it on the link above.

I loved all of the talks I watched on that day, and it was my first time in this event in person. Everything was above all my expectations, I am already looking forward to the next one. Huge shoutout to all the organizers/volunteers. If you want to check out all of the talks, go into the channel, and search for the playlist of the 2023 videos, you won’t regret it.

My scketchnotes from Tableau Conference 2021 – Data Culture & Data Governance

Hello! Recently I’ve started a new job as a Business Intelligence Analyst (I’m thrilled about this :D). One of my team’s main tool is Tableau, which is used to create data visualizations. I’ve always loved this topic, but it was not something necessary to apply at work… until now!

Tableau has a conference that is happening from November 9-12. I attended the first day yesterday, specially the sessions that talk about Data Governance and Data Culture, given these are topics that will be present in my day to day work.

Something things about me:

  • I’m a visual learner;
  • I like to take notes, they help me structure what I just listened;
  • I love drawing (love does not equal being great at it, you can love it too!);
  • Sometimes it’s hard for me to just sit there and listen to a talk, my mind can drift away very quickly.

Once I saw Kendra Little’s method of sketchnotes and thought it was awesome so I’m giving it a try now. Basically, during the live conference you take notes, but not writing too much. This method forced me into condensing the topic even more, and using visual aids to make the notes more appealing. For my first try it was interesting. It was a great help for me, because I learn better if I’m writing something down, and doing it this way allowed it more freedom.

Without further ado, here are the notes so far! I hope that by checking them out you could understand what the session was and inspire you to try your own!

Data for the win: how two olympic athletes use data
Data Literacy: How to get your company involved in data
Empower users to know, use & trust governed data
Creating Data-Driven Organizations

I know there are typos in there, my goal was not to take perfect notes, but to absorb as much information as possible. I hope this was useful and let me know if you try it!

Let’s all data!
