Louisville SQL Server and Power BI User Group

Welcome

Welcome!

Welcome to the Louisville SQL Server Users Group! We represent the SQL Server community in Louisville, the surrounding metropolitan area, and throughout most of Kentucky. As a technical users group, we focus on monthly meetings, but also provide networking, learning opportunities, speaking opportunities, training, and collaboration for SQL Server professionals throughout the Ohio Valley area. Our monthly meetings occur on the second Thursday of each month, either at lunchtime in the downtown Louisville area or in the evening outside downtown. This alternating approach to meeting times and locations allows us to support as many of our users as possible and provides different venue and time options for our meetings and our attendees. We also partner with various volunteer groups to bring special events to the area, such as SQL Saturdays. Those events typically draw large crowds of SQL Server professionals from Kentucky, Ohio, Indiana, Tennessee, and beyond!

Visualization is not Analytics – when people get them confused, they are disappointed in the outcome

Join us on Thursday, March 9th for the next meeting of the Louisville SQL Server and Power BI Users Group! We will meet at the TEK Systmes facility. Meeting information is as follows:

TopicVisualization is not Analytics – when people get them confused, they are disappointed in the outcome

Description:  While clear and accurate representation of data is important, it is not the whole story.  Visualization projects are often undertaken not only to understand what happened, but also to explain what caused it to happen.  And with increasing frequency, visualizations are projected into the future to predict what will happen.  This moves us away from simple visualization and into analysis and prediction.  In this short presentation we’ll cover visualization in both R and Tableau, their relative strengths and weakness for both simple visualization and and for analysis, and when to select one over the other.

Speaker: Stan Siranovich
