Gigi Zanolli is a developer advocate and her mission is to enable Tableau’s developers to be successful in their usage of our APIs and developer tools. Before moving to Seattle, she helped customers all around EMEA with their Tableau adoption.

Originally from Mauritius, Gigi decided to trade sunny days for new adventures in Europe and now the US.
