Upcoming Meeting: Thursday, 9/18 from 1-4PM
Location: Norfolk Southern Corporation | 1200 Peachtree Street, NE | Atlanta, GA
Our September ATUG meeting comes on the heels of another great Tableau Conference. The agenda for our meeting this month will be (times approximate):
1:00 - 1:10 == Welcome
1:10 - 1:35 == Those who attended the Tableau Conference last week will briefly discuss observances from the conference
1:35 - 2:00 == Paul Lisborg with Oldcastle Architectural, Inc. will introduce us to the data set to be used for the data visualization contest and may toss in some ideas on what can be done with the data (we will also break into groups for the contest)
2:00 - 2:15 == Networking break
2:15 - 3:00 == Groups build their dashboards for the data visualization contest
3:00 - 3:30 == Groups present their dashboards and a winning group is selected
3:30 - 3:45 == Q/A & Wrap-up
The data visualization building competition is a great event for those new to (or interested in) Tableau for we break into groups of varying experience levels to create group dashboards within a 45-60 minute time frame. Those in attendance will vote for a winning group.
