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!
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!
