One More Exam to Go!

 What a wild ride this year has been!  This Summer semester at both Auburn University and Columbus State University almost killed me.  In spite of Murphy's best attempts, I'm cruising towards the finish line.  Two exams down and three monstrous projects done... matter of fact.  It's almost 6 AM and I've been up all night working on the last one.  The video presentation of my data.  

Data Analytics graduate level class...WHAT was I thinking?  I thought I was doomed, like extinct.  But this dinosaur sallied on and decided to give the millenials in class a taste of what a Tableau Specialist (yeah, passed the Industry qualification test this Winter) can do. 

Seriously, Tableau is revolutionizing data visualization.  I'm more than a fan, I'm a groupie.  Long past are static, boring charts:

Behold children, the future in data:  (video)

Data in animation, that you can drill down and geek out on.  This was my first time recording a presentation.  I need practice.  But, it was fun.

Now for an hour sleep, a full day's work and one last exam tonight and I'm free... for 10 days before it starts up all over again!
