What we're about
Join our data community! We love SQL, Analytics, BI, Data Governance and other data topics that can greatly impact our businesses. This isn't a hiking group, nor do we serve beer, although many of us are from the Pacific Northwest and consider ourselves aficionados. We simply love to encourage everybody's journey to master data in their career, and we want to make doing so as enjoyable as nursing your favorite brew at the pub.
Our group is a great place for business professionals, analysts, accountants, even developers new to the data side. Students charting a course for their career will find it valuable, as well as professionals looking to shift their career to focus on data. There are many different paths to become what we call a Business Technologist. We have experienced data professionals who love to attend to share their experience and help the group. Join us to learn, share, level up your career, and make friends.
Our list of topic groups will be growing, including groups that focus on specific industries like Pension Administration, Banking, and others. We keep an eye on the common and emerging business data tools that you should know about, and roughly every 6 months we go back to SQL fundamentals so everybody can refresh and get caught up.
Meetings are online now, every other week at 6pm Pacific. We meet for one hour and afterwards socialize and answer questions. We are considering a new and expanded schedule, so stay tuned. You are free to suggest topics of interest and we may even direct a series of meetings when needed.
Hope to see you there!
