July 2018 TUG!

Posted by Gina Bremer Jun 19, 2018

Join us on Thursday, July 19th, for our monthly Bellingham Tableau User Group meetup.  This month we are going to be working together to create our own data visualization masterpiece.  Tableau has challenged all of the user groups to create a dashboard about New Orleans (the home of TC18) and we want in. The winning group gets $500 for user group purposes!

If you are one of our more beginner Tableau users, don't be intimidated. There will be different levels of participation for this event. You can be a developer, a helper, or simply an observer. You can also be all three

 

What to Bring

If you want to help develop the dashboard, I challenge you to create a data visualization on New Orleans before the user group. We will start the user group by reviewing the vizzes that you have created and giving constructive feedback (if you want it). Based on what has been created, we will align on a single vision and move forward together. Here are the recommended steps if you would like to give it a shot:

  1. Find your data set:  there is a wealth of information on the NOLA website (https://datadriven.nola.gov/home/)
  2. Get clear on your question and intended use: what story are you trying to tell with your dashboard? How do you want people to use your dashboard? Does your design idea support this? This will help us give feedback and understand your intention.
  3. Remember the judging criteria: 25 points: Creativity, 25 points: Analytical Depth, 25 points: Relevance to the theme, 25 points: Design
  4. Build it and publish to Tableau Public
  5. Send me the link to your published workbook at ginamariabremer@liftedviz.com so we can have it loaded up at the user group. I am also happy to review and give feedback prior to the group as well.

If you would simply like to contribute feedback or observe, just bring yourself!

April 2018 TUG!

Posted by Gina Bremer Mar 21, 2018

Join us on Tuesday, April 10th, for our monthly Bellingham Tableau User Group meetup.  We are excited to have Matt Peterson from Tableau give us a demo to showcase some of the features and functionality of the software. We will cover a variety of topics with a little extra focus on mapping for our friends who spend their time working with geographic data.

This event will be focused primarily on our beginner users with little to no experience in Tableau and those who want a refresher in the basics. That being said, there will be plenty of time to ask questions and leverage Matt's expertise for our more experienced users as well.

February 2018 TUG!

Posted by Gina Bremer Feb 8, 2018

Join us on Tuesday, February 27th, at our first Bellingham Tableau User Group of 2018! Help us launch a year of collaboration, support, and learning for current and aspiring Tableau users in Bellingham, WA! We want to get to know you, for you to get to know each other, and to work together to build a community.

 

We will start off with introductions—tell us a bit about yourself and how you use Tableau as your data visualization tool (or why you are interested for those in the ‘aspiring users’ category!)

Once we are all acquainted, we will jump into our discussion topics! Hear what others are doing that works, where help could be used, and future plans for the group.

  1. What have been your biggest successes in Tableau? What works well for you?
  2. What have been your biggest struggles with Tableau? What are your pain points?
  3. What would you like to get out of this group / community (e.g. training, inspiration, support, tips + tricks, networking, etc.)?

We will be limiting the first meetup to 20 people. Make sure to RSVP soon to secure your spot! This event is 21+.

 

Agenda

3:00pm – 3:30pm Welcome + Introductions

3:30pm – 4:30pm Discussion Topics

4:30pm – 5:30pm Social Hour + Networking
