Next week a new user group is starting up in the Twin Cities.  This is being started up by one of my friends, Alan Wernke.  If you are interested in Data Visualizations then this will be a user group you will want to check out.  This is the very first meeting and the topics that will be presented are a case study with the Tableau 6.0 software along with tips & tricks.  Of course there will be time for networking as well.
