About Us

The Portland Power BI User Group (PUG) is a community of people excited about the business analytics tool, Power BI. We believe the platform offers rich possibilities, and we keep pace by sharing our learning and doing deep-dive explorations of topics. We run the gamut from new to experienced users and welcome anyone who shares an interest in data analytics.

Some great perks to joining our monthly meetups are networking, knowledge transfer, and community building. We aim to foster a vibrant community that shares success in implementing best practices for Power BI. Complimentary pizza, beer, and refreshments are served at every meetup.

The Portland PUG is globally known throughout the PUG community to have started the Global Power BI Hackathon. Below is the link to see our Hackathon Team entries for 2018 and the winning results.
