Russell- any info on the date/time of the next meeting?
I want to start blocking out my calendar.
Phillip & Everyone,
I do have some more details for the next event. For the War of Tugs 2015 event we are planning on doing the event on Saturday July 25th. We figured a weeknight wouldn't provide enough time to build a viz for the contest so we thought Saturday would work best. The rules are basically the same as above, but we are now allowed to submit 3 different workbooks for the group (each workbook will be judge separately, all workbooks have to be created on the same day).
We do not have a location setup for the July 25th event as we are unsure of the number of people that are interested in participating, especially with the event being on Saturday. So for those that are interested in building a visualization together as a group please either reply to this thread or email me so I can keep track of the number of people we have.
If there isn't a lot of interest we can cancel the event or we can have a few small teams work on separate entries. I can provide an update next weekend given the feedback I receive for the event.
The 5th event will be on Thursday August 27th at 84.51°. I will post more information in the next week or 2 about the August event.
Unfortunately, I will be out of town and will not be able to participate. Was really looking forward to it, too.
No problem Scott hopefully you can make it to the event in August.
At this point I haven't received any interest from anyone, so if anyone wants to participate please get a hold of me so we can figure out what to do.
Is there another time that works for you? We don't have much interest from other folks, so we can be flexible and change to an evening if more people will join. That won't give us much time to work on the viz.
We have downloaded the data. If you are interested in participating today, please contact Russell or me so that we can add you to the Dropbox folder. The plan is to work with the data throughout the day and meet up at my house early evening with pizza and beer to put this all together.
Sorry, was in Florida on vacation.
