Thanks for volunteering to speak at Analyze Boulder! Our presenters are the core of the event, and we hear over and over that the quality of the presentations at AB is what makes it such a cool event.
We review all submissions in depth, but do not accept all. Your presentation must meet the following criterion, above all:
Interesting and fun talk about the power of data and the adventure of working with and analyzing it.
We will review your proposal and get back to you.
(1) The Tone of the Meetup:
The tone of the meetup is upbeat, fun, rapid-fire, funny, and succinct. The audience should be immediately psyched about what you found or did.
Also, beer ;)
(2) Your Presentation
Your presentation will:
1. be explicitly focused on data (visualization, tools, technology, findings, insights…);
2. have 1 - 2 slides focused on code or the technical details of what you did;
3. otherwise be very accessible (a data newbie should understand what’s cool about what you did and why);
4. be 5 minutes long;
5. be followed by 5 minutes Q&A;
6. be exciting, upbeat, and rapid-fire;
7. not contain any pitching, selling, or recruiting;
8. provide at least one “aha” moment (could be a topical insight from your analysis, “I didn’t know you could do that,” or “wow I want to use D3 for my next viz,” for example)
(3) And finally ...
- 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.
Thanks! - The Analyze Boulder Team
