Thanks for volunteering to speak at Analyze Boulder! Please read below and fill out the form.
(1) The Tone of the Meetup and Your Presentation:
Analyze Boulder strives to bring the data community *and* the general public together around the power of data. Your audience will be very diverse, so your presentation must be accessible... your grandmother should be able to get it and be excited about it, like a TED Talk.
This is a community event, so NO pitching, selling, or recruiting in presentations. We reserve time at the beginning of the meetup for any job openings, events, and announcements.
The tone of the meetup is upbeat, rapid-fire, and succinct. The audience should be immediately psyched about what you found, so communicate your findings quickly and clearly, rather than showing 20 slides of code. We do love us some tech, though, so be sure to include 1-2 slides on tools and methodologies used.
(2) Timing of Presentations:
We recommend and prefer 5 minute talks. It goes by faster than you think! Out of respect for the audience’s time, we will give 2 and 1 minute time checks, and will cut you off after 5 minutes. Our best presenters practice before to stay on time.
This will be followed by 5 minutes Q&A.
(3) And finally ...
- NO pitching, selling, or recruiting. Tell us interesting things you've done or learned with data.
- Please send slides to firstname.lastname@example.org on or before the Sunday prior to the meetup.
- Please arrive at least 15 minutes early to the meetup for a quick briefing.
- You may use your own machine or ours, just let us know which when you send your slides.
Finally, THANK YOU for presenting. Our presenters are the core of the Meetup, and we hear over and over that the quality of the presentations at AB is what makes it such a cool event.
Thanks! - The Analyze Boulder Team.
