For some in our profession, Business Intelligence is "just another job". Then, there are people like Maven lead Tableau instructor Dustin Cabral, who bring a rare level of passion that puts them in a whole other category.

If this is the first time you've been exposed to Dustin's enthusiasm for all things data, then you are in for an absolute treat.

For those of you who have had the pleasure of taking Dustin's Intro to Tableau Desktop, you've likely been eagerly awaiting the release of his new Advanced Tableau Desktop.

We're aiming to get that course out as early as tomorrow (NOT a typo!).

In the meantime, here's a video from Dustin that should tide you over and will definitely make you laugh, at least a few times.

It might not come as a surprise that Dustin's passion for data sometimes spills over into life at home. In this presentation to the Boston Tableau User Group, titled Quantified Kids, you'll see this in action, and get an inside look at Dustin's meticulous system for tracking and visualizing the many aspects of his children's lives.

We like this video in particular because it is a great example of some of the things that make Dustin such a great instructor...his love for the numbers, constant sense of humor, and fantastic communication style. I could listen to this guy all day!

You probably want to watch the video from 2 minutes and 40 seconds in, which is where you'll start when you click play below. This is when Dustin gets started after the introductions are wrapped.

Enjoy!
