Knowing how to extract the information "hidden" in the data can make a difference, regardless of your occupation. The topics are often strongly interdisciplinary, as well the tools you can use.
Take home ideas to level up your skills with tools like Excel, Tableau or Power BI. Or if you wish to get to the next level using R, Python or even D3.js, this will be the meetup for you as well.
We want to bring together absolute beginners, professionals or people who are enthusiastic about info/data vis. The attendees should find it easy to get involved in a dialogue. Every question is allowed, from basic understanding to concrete problems.
We want to become a community to grow understanding and skills for data visualization and interaction. Let's show how beneficial data/info visualizations is!
Ideas and collaboration from everyone on how to shape or change the meeting are welcome.
Also, If you are interested in becoming a fellow administrator or event organiser, please contact any of the administrators.
