Seattle - Data Vis/Infographics Study Group

Let's dive into the latest version of MS-Excel and try out PowerPivot, PowerView and maybe even Data Explorer and GeoFlow. Maggie Sparkman, with assistance from Amy Forstrom, Will Thompson and Crystal Ju, will demo the new tools and then we'll do some hands-on work with them, too.

Before we start with Excel that evening, we'll take about 30 minutes to look at our works-in-progress. Let me know if you have a dataviz or infographic that could use a little TLC from the study group; heck, I might even bring one that I'm working on, I'd love to get some feedback :-)

See you in May!
Leah

    Hey, all - I posted the Excel workbook with the data from Sandy's brother's bar. It's on the Files page, http://www.meetup.com/Seattle-Visualization-SeaVis/files/. Play on!

    Is anyone planning on hosting a google+ hangout for the lame people (like myself) that can't make it in person? I'll offer a bribe of two beers before/after the next meet-up :)

    Hi Leah! Here I am being annoying again. :) These features are in version Excel 2013?

    April 23, 2013

    • Will T.

      They are! Specifically, you need the Professional Plus version if either Office 2013 or Office 365... We'll make sure we bring plenty of laptops with it installed for everyone to play with.
