Event description

Description

The OTUG lives! again! Please join us for an afternoon of visualization prowess. This second gathering builds on the success of our previous session, but with more ZEN! Awesome content supplied by a team from the BISI program at Algonquin, Newcomp Analytics ...and... all the way from Kansas... flying in on a real airplane and everything... our headliner, the incalculably talented, immeasurably helpful, Ryan Sleeper!

Do you pine for visual empathy? Do you yearn for dashboarding tribalism? We feel the same way. All we have to do is find each other. This event will be by the community, for the community, with the sole purpose of departing with more knowledge and LinkedIn contacts than you had when you arrived.

This FREE event will be held at Algonquin college. Click http://www.algonquincollege.com/parking/map for parking map.
