- Analytics are a hot topic, and the evening events don't have enough time to dig in.
- Analytics are divided by functional silos, but their work is starting to overlap.
- Three main objectives:
- Learn from each other
- Meet people with similar interests
- Especially people working in the other analytics silos
How does it work?
- Free admission, low overhead
- Local event intended to attract primarily local folks
- Unconference format to create a participatory environment
- Agenda designed to attract different categories of analytics pros
- Career track for students and others interested in in analytics careers
- How to prepare to attend an unconference
We're using the unconference format, in which the actual agenda will be determined on the morning of the event. We'll invite some experts to present, to ensure that we cover some major topics and to help people see the value in the day.
Major topic areas we expect to cover:
- Web analytics
- Social media analysis
- Customer analytics (includes some of social media, web, email)
- Text analytics
- Business intelligence
- Data mining / predictive analytics
- Data visualization
- How to start a career in analytics
We've started a list of session ideas for inspiration. If you plan to present a session at AnalyticsCamp, please add it to the proposals page. The final agenda will be determined in our opening session and posted to the sessions page.
