What is an “unconferance” and Do I need to prepare anything?

MeasureCamp is an unconferance format so… officially you just need to turn-up & wing it on the day.

But if you want to prepare something in advance here are some tips:

  • Regarding approach for talk, the most important make it fun! This could by adding a fun theme like IronMan or StarWars, Running it as an Analytics Challenge, Realtime Game, or an interesting/unusual story for instance John Woods did a talk on “British Photo Reconnaissance in WW2 teach us how to better organise digital analytics today”.
  • Also, feel free to show off, if you have been doing cool stuff that`s cutting edge or innovated then add this!

Sessions can be either a:

  1. Presentation
  2. Discussion
  3. Workshop

They can be aimed at either:

  1. Beginners
  2. Intermediate
  3. Advanced

There are some examples of previous sessions here:

  • Russell McAthy, normally runs an ask the expert panel sessions at the end aswell. So you can join that panel or just listen to discussions aswell.
  • Its a change to get feedback and test ideas, so if you want to demo something you have been building thats fine too. At previous MeasureCamps – Dan Bakers did a demo & feedback session on a beta surveying tool, and Craig O`Sullivan did the same with a GA Dashboarding tool called Profit Grids.
