I thought to myself that braces are braces, no matter how old you are when you are wearing them. They can hurt but they do great things for your smile. Hence, this article was born.
This is a fun article. I created a Tableau dashboard that allows us to view 55 years of temperature data to see if global warming is impacting where we live. When you spend a little time using this tool, you will have a better appreciation of the variability of weather and the difficulty of concluding anything about global warming.
In my continuing series of understanding air temperature changes over time, I go deep to develop predictive models of air temperature changes at over 3200 monitoring stations. Alteryx and Tableau simply were outstanding in allowing me to perform this work in a couple of nights.
This is a summary article that contains links to the Tableau vs Power BI series I have been working on. I also include some impressions about using the software tools in real-world situations.
The vision formed 2 years ago. Many months of experimentation and testing went into completing the vision. You need to read the article to understand what I mean.
