Hello!

 

I’m reaching out to you all today to encourage you to compete in Go Code Colorado, the free public data analytics & business competition. This year, the competition is offering a full Saturday of mentorship, team-building, data-exploration and idea vetting and 4 teams will win $15,000 each without obligation. It is a great way to gain experience, network with others in the community, and have fun. The Secretary of State’s office is the host of the event and keeps attendees well fed and hydrated (with beer donated by Great Divide) all day.

 

 

I could not be more excited about the competition this year and would love to have you join us! I will be teaching an hour long FREE Tableau class at both Challenge Days and would love to see your faces.

 

Let me know if I can answer any questions.

 

Thanks!

Heather

Boulder TUG Co-Chair/Boulder Insight Director of Training + Education
