Lena talked about her favourite Tableau feature: dual axes. Nicknamed “Miss Dual Axes” by her colleagues, she introduced us to use cases and no-go’s around dual axes in data visualization.
Emily Kund: Accessibility In Data Visualization
Emily inspired us all with her primer on accessibility in data viz. She showed us the many ways in which we should cater to a diverse audience, educated us on inclusive design, and opened up a multitude of paths for us to create data visualization experiences that target all audiences.

Daria Voronova: The Power Of Freedom That Lives Within, Or: How To Find Your Authentic Path And Make Your Dreams Come True
Daria lead us through her journey in data analytics, telling us about the crossroads she passed, the decisions she had to make, the development she now looks back on, and how to flourish by pursuing your passion.
Alison Holland: Quantifying User Feedback – How Text Mining Helped Me Become A Better Listener To Our Users
A lot of user feedback comes in written form and it can be tricky to keep track of the most pressing issues. Text mining in R opened a whole new analysis opportunity that began with analysing written feedback in surveys, then evolved into combining reviews, customer support feedback and survey feedback in a visual and quantifiable way. Alison led us through her process of survey analytics.
Text Mining in R:
- Text Mining Guide
- DataCamp for R basics
- DataCamp for text mining
- Sentiment analysis with negation proofing -> the sentimentr package was great for this!
- Measuring U
- Quantifying the User Experience: Practical Statistics for User Research
- Excel and R Companion to the 2nd Edition of Quantifying the User Experience

Corinna Müller: Data Modeling with SQL
Corinna gave us an introduction into data modeling using SQL to make sure your data is in the right shape to build a report in Tableau without using an extra ETL tool.
You can connect with Corinna on LinkedIn. She mentioned the following resources during her session, so check these out:
- Database: PostgreSQL
- Data: Tableau Bookstore (tables used in demo: Book, Edition, Author, TradingDates)
- the finished SQL statement (uploaded as text file)
- SQL Island, a game to learn SQL by playing (if it shows up in German, go to the menu with the three horizontal lines and select the third option “Sprache wechseln” to change language to English or Português)
