It was so great having so many of you join us for our first Virtual Boulder Tableau User Group this Tuesday, 4/14. It's so important now, more than ever, that we stay connected.

 

For those of you who couldn't make it, no worries, we've got you covered!  As promised, herehttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vAsMlS3Szvs&feature=youtu.be is the recording of this week's Virtual Boulder TUG meeting.

 

We also had one question we didn't have time to answer during the "Stump the Chump" Session regarding sorting, so Chris and I got together after the meeting and recorded the answer herehttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f6vpd1bgWAE - ENJOY!:

 

Finally, we'd like to have more Virtual Boulder TUG's in the future. Please take a minute to let us know your thoughts and preferences by completing this super quick (4-question) survey! For those of you who didn't attend, you can just skip question 3.

 

As always, eel free to reach out if you have any questions about the event, are curious about other programs, workshops, networking sessions, or user group meetings, or just want to say hi. We'd love to hear from you. Just email heather@boulderinsight.com.

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
