Ben Jones of Tableau and Tanya Cashorali of Basho will each be presenting on some of the cool features of Tableau. Ben is in town as part of their Roadshow Tour. Examples of Ben's data visualizations may be found here:
Tableau Portfolio (http://public.tableausoftware.com/views/BenJones-Resume/Portfolio?:embed=y), and at Data Remixed (http://dataremixed.com/)
Tanya has blog on Sport's Data Viz (http://sportsdataviz.com/)
Please note that the front door is locked at 7 pm. We will put a note up with a mobile# for folks to text/call, and then someone will let you in. For transportation, please note that the South Station is nearby (a few minute walk). There is some on-street parking near Bocoup, and towards the Seaport/ICA Museum there are paid parking lots as well as more on-street metered parking (some are free after 6; though best to check this!).
6:00 - 6:30: Refreshments/Food, Hang-Out and Chat
6:30 - 8:00: Presentations, Demos
8:00 - 8:10: Break Time
8:10 - 9:00: Hands-On!
Ben is putting together a short hands-on exercise for which the thinking is to have folks get together in small groups to explore a dataset and create data visualizations. Tanya and him will be roaming around the room helping folks. If you are interested in sticking around to participate then please download Tableau Public (http://www.tableausoftware.com/public/download) prior to the event.
