I'll certainly be attending. Looking forward to it.
One of the good ideas from the recent Tableau Public meetup was to have three presenters would talk for 5 mins on one of their Vizzes and then break off to side areas where people could chat about them and ask questions in smaller groups, this worked well and gave people a chance to mingle in a less formal "presentation" setting.
We could do this after a more formal 30 min session, say on LOD calcs, or v9, or anything people were interested in seeing?
The London TUG also breaks away to the pub afterwards, would be good if people were interested.
A challenge element would be good - perhaps sharing a data prior to the session, with people presenting how they approached it, what they visualised and why.
great idea Claire - I love a good challenge :-)
Sounds good especially if there are as many doughnuts as in the last meeting! However it is my wife's birthday that day so I may need to decline - we shall see :-)
I was told about these groups last week and found this one here in the Midlands. Wanted to know if someone could possible explain how it works, what the group does etc. Couldn't find a description and didn't get told a whole lot about it previously. Keen to learn more!
I'm not sure if Dave got in touch but here's the agenda for the next meeting (via Midlands Tableau User Group Tickets, Leicester | Eventbrite)
17:00 - 18:00 Arrivals and Networking
18:00 - 18:30 Version 9 Overview and Key Benefits, Chris Love
18:30 - 19:00 More Than Pixels On a Screen, Rob Radburn
19:00 - 19:30 Iron Viz
19:30 - Wrap Up/Q&A
It's all very informal, we meet and basically geek out around Tableau. Undoubtedly there will be drinks afterwards at somewhere nearby for those interested.
Basically it's just an opportunity to chat to others about Tableau, meet some experts and do some networking and hopefully have some fun at the same time.
No, no one has been in touch. I shall register for this now. Thank you
