Come and join our March UBCTUG Working Meetup!

In the first hour, we will present and showcase how Tableau is being used in other universities.

For the second hour, we plan to do lots of hands-on and immersive Tableau work. Bring your own data. 

We can work in mini-groups, or one big group, to get you started on Tableau, or just get constructive feedback on your current views and dashboards.  Bring your own data sets! You'll get your hands dirty, and start working with Tableau. We'll do a show and tell for each data set, and we'll compare notes, experiences, feedback that we can use for the next data set.

To get the most out of this meetup, bring your laptop pre-installed with Tableau v8 Public, or Tableau v8 Desktop.

Never used Tableau before? This is your chance to see it in action! Used Tableau already?

Test your skills, and mentor someone else!

See you March 20!

Meetup has allowed me to meet people I wouldn't have met naturally - they're totally different than me.
