MinneAnalytics has teamed up with our friends at Twin Cities (Data) Visualization Group to bring you an evening of presentations and networking centered around one of our favorite topics – data visualization. Finding interpretation across many fields, data visualization has perhaps never been more important to analysts in making complex data more accessible.
Aiding in our quest for visual literacy will be excellent speakers, good beer and great company. More details to come soon.
6 pm – 7 pm – Registration
7 pm – 9 pm – Presentations
9 pm – 10 pm – Social Hour
