Power BI User Group (PUG)

Power BI User Group website

The idea for the User Groups grew from the vision of Power BI users wanting to connect with other users and learn firsthand the best way to leverage the software they used every day.

A Member-Driven Organization

We look at everything we do, from our educational offerings to our member benefits to our annual user conference, as a way to help members achieve your ultimate goal - growing your knowledge and competency in your Power BI system.

With that in mind, members are at the forefront of our content and strategy. Our Advisory Committee, made up of member representatives, leads the strategic direction of PowerBIUG. Members volunteer their time and talents to present webinars, lead PUG meetings and share their tips. With each new member, the value of the community and the shared knowledge base grows - increasing the learning and education for all who are engaged.

Meetup is an online service used to create groups that host local in-person events. As of 2017, there are about 35 million Meetup users. Each user can be a member of multiple groups or RSVP for any number of events. Users are usually using the website to find friends, share a hobby, or for professional networking. Meetup users do not have "followers" or other direct connections with each other like on other social media sites.

San Francisco Machine Learning User Experience - MLUX

We’re excited about creating a future of human-centered smart products, and we believe the first step to doing this is to connect UX and Data Science/Machine Learning folks to get together and learn from each other.

We're a mix of data scientists, designers, machine learning scientists, PMs and more - exploring a human centered approach to machine learning.

This meetup is sponsored by the Center for Technology, Society & Policy Fellowship in conjunction with the Algorithm Fairness and Opacity Working Group at UC Berkeley.
