Tableau Conference 2018 Highlights
You did WHAT with the Extensions API & Devs on Stage
We were very excited to be part of the ‘You did WHAT with the Extensions API‘ breakout session during the biggest Tableau Conference of the year. This session included 6 demo’s of crazy hacks with the new Extensions API. We were the grand finally of the session, where we showed how to build Mario in Tableau. Watch our part of the session here.
Also, during the most popular keynote of the Conference: Devs on Stage, Keshia Rose showed our Extension as part of her presentation, a big milestone for us!
Pirate Award at TC18 Hackathon
On Monday, we contested at the Hackathon. The goal of the Hackathon was to create something impactful with the APIs of Tableau. We wanted to use functions which are coming in the new release of the Extensions API but were not able to use it because it was not in beta yet. Therefore, we switched to another theme we love: Games! The Hackathon was sponsored by Netflix and they where teasing us with a new season of Stranger Things. We decided to create a Stranger Things themed game called: The Upside Down Pac-Man. The GIF on the left is an example of the game. If you are interested in playing, download the workbook below!
We won the Pirate Award with this Tableau Hack :)
