    Just curious, what do you use for telepresence? We're looking at Blue Jeans for our small office.

      Join.me to share screens and conference calls; MS Lync ; occasionally we use GoToMeeting if we need something with more bandwidth. I'll have to take a look at Blue Jeans :-)

    We may have a telepresence option but won't know until just before the meet-up starts. If we get one set-up I'll post the connection info here.

    I'll ask Ben and Robert :-)

    Great question - want me to do a Google Hangout from my laptop?

  • David

    It's a long shot, I know, but is there any chance for a remote dial in or other telepresence option for tonight's meet up?

    HOMEWORK/ASSIGNMENT FOR THIS MEETUP!

    During his talk, which makes up the first part of the evening, Robert will describe some of the stories he found in BLS (Bureau of Labor Statistics) data on unemployment in different US metropolitan areas. YOUR MISSION: Go to menu at the top of this Meet-up Page and click on More-->Files and download 'Homework/Assignment for the 6/27 Meetup'. This file contains links to Robert's data files, more details on the assignment and extras to help you understand the data.

    Look at these data files and SEE WHAT STORIES YOU CAN FIND. We'll spend the 2nd part of the evening looking at what we found and how.

    If you have any questions about the assignment or data, just let me know at [masked]

    NEW LOCATION FOR THIS THURSDAY'S MEET-UP
    Ben Jones and Robert Kosara will host this week's meeting at Tableau in Fremont, 837 N 34th St (a block from the Fremont Bridge/Fremont Ave and N 34th St). There will be non-alcoholic drinks and pizza!

    One note about parking: Do not use the parking garage underneath the building, we can’t validate their parking and there’s no way to pay. But there is plenty of parking right outside and close by.
