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 talks at AB is what makes it cool. Ideal presentations are upbeat, fun, rapid-fire, funny, and succinct. The audience should be immediately psyched about what you found or did.
We review all submissions, but do not accept all. We’ll contact you if your proposal fits the guidelines below. We highly recommend attending an event before presenting.
Your presentation SHOULD:
1. be explicitly focused on data and your adventures with it (visualization, tools, technology, findings, insights…);
2. have 1 - 2 slides on code or technical details, otherwise be geared to a general & varied audience;
3. be 5 minutes long, followed by 5 minutes Q&A;
4. be exciting, upbeat, and rapid-fire;
5. provide at least one “aha” moment (“I didn’t know you could do that!,” or “wow I want to use D3 for my next viz!,” for example)
Your presentation SHOULD NOT:
1. contain any pitching, selling or recruiting - keep info about you/your company to 1 slide;
2. start with a long introduction - dive in and let the data do the talking!
After your proposal is accepted:
- Please send slides to email@example.com 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.
- The Analyze Boulder Team
