Madison TUG turns 6 years old this month and we're having a birthday party
To celebrate, we are partnering with Box of Balloons, a non-profit that provides birthday parties to kids in need. Started in Sun Prairie, they now have chapters across 18 states.
At the party, you will have fun with fellow TUG members, eat and drink,
possibly win some Tableau swag, AND of course, build some fun birthday related views using data provided by Box of Balloons.
Attendees can work together in small groups to build out some views, or you can help others out that need a little viz and technical help. The workbooks you build will give Box of Balloons insight and understanding into trends and the overall work that their chapters across the US are doing. Who knows, your work may just end up in some of their marketing materials, or help them win community grants!
There is no cost to attend, but we do ask that you be an active participant in the event by either building vizzes on a team (bring your laptop if you want to drive the development) or supporting other teams with your ideas and technical knowledge.
We also hope you'll consider bringing charitable donation items.

Tableau is generously supporting this event as an opportunity to give back to the communities where our user groups live and play. The viz development and donations you bring will directly impact our Madison area community!
