Welcome to the SF Bay BIRT Developer meetup Mark! This should be a great place to learn more about BIRT and visualization. If you haven't done so already, you may want to take a look at the material on BIRT Exchange at http://www.birt-exchange.org too.
Calling BIRT developers in the San Francisco Bay area! This meetup will focus on helping you learn and make the most out of BIRT in your reporting and data visualization projects – as well as providing opportunities to network with other local developers and to have some fun.
What you can expect:
Presentations by BIRT Experts on best practices for BIRT design, deployment and application development
Discussions exploring techniques for using BIRT with the latest new technologies such as analytics and big data
Examples of real-life BIRT usage in industry, finance and government
