Ben Jones of Tableau will join us for this month's Hacks/Hackers and ONA-Austin meetup to demonstrate their free data visualization tool, Tableau Public, and show how journalists and others can use it to explore data and make visualizations that help tell stories.
You can learn more about Tableau Public here.
Doors open at 6:30 p.m. for hors d'oeuvres and socializing, with the presentation at 7 p.m. Tableau will host a social afterward at a nearby bar venue to be determined.
The meeting will be in the first floor conference room of the Austin American-Statesman office building at 305 S. Congress Ave.
(For those interested in a more in-depth look at Tableau, they are hosting a 4-hour workshop during Data Day Texas on March 30th. Austin Hacks/Hackers can get a 20% discount by using the code "hacks-hackers-20" at http://datadaytexas.com.)
