Hello Everyone,

A Bigger Boat: Data Visualization Lessons from the Movie Theater

by Mark Vaillancourt

In this session, we discuss the fundamentals of human visual perception, including the important distinction between pre-attentive and attentive processing. We use examples from feature films such as "Jaws", "Alien", "Sneakers", and "The Incredibles" to show important aspects of visual analysis around color, form, position, and motion. We then put these concepts into practice via demos in Excel and Power BI, as well as audience participation. By the end of this session, you will have a solid understanding of the importance of data visualization and how to use it to expose the story in your data to enable better decisions.

It will be at 1:30 PM until 4:00 PM at the usual location in room 206.

This will be the last meeting of 2016 AND the end of the first year of meetings for the Saskatoon SQL User Group.  I look forward to an exciting year 2 where we have a few live speakers lined up.
