      Hi. My name is Eric and I am a Tableau fanatic.


      I am a Seattle native and have been head over heels for the product since we first met about 3 years ago. I currently work for Novell as a data analyst and have been actively pitching Tableau to my group since I moved here (and subsequently lost access to my prior employer's license). I'm sure they are tired of my incessant comments about how amazing Tableau is, but I am not giving up.


      Four months ago I decided I was going to make Tableau my "One" thing and I ponied up for a personal license. I have been actively training and building viz since then, as my passion and hobby, and I am loving every minute. Each time I build a viz, I find a new way to use the software and love that the learning process is never ending.


      My hope is that we can build a strong community around our common love for data and Tableau. If you don't love Tableau yet, join us anyway and we can discuss and hopefully help with the frustrations you are facing. We are looking for all levels of competency to make this a great experience and benefit for all members.


      Please introduce yourself here and share what you hope to get out of the group.

          Hello, my name is Roger and I also am a data addict.


          I live in Provo, but work in Lehi at a software company, eFileCabinet.  We have been growing quickly and never quite fully implemented Tableau.  I'm very excited for an accessible group of Tableau users who have experienced the implementation of Tableau and can help me navigate the process.  My partner in crime, Eric Salas, is also a data nerd and will be attending the first meeting with me.  Thanks for setting this up, Eric Summers

              Hi, I'm not located in Provo, but my company does have an office there. I will tell them about the user group! Do you have a location set for next week's UG meeting?
