On February 16th 2013 I had the pleasure of attending the MeasureCamp London ’unconference’ (where the agenda is made up on the day) along with over 100 other web analytics enthusiasts. In this post, I’m going to share my experiences and cover some of the tips discussed on the day, with extra tips and advice added here and there.
It was my first time at an ‘unconference’ and I was a little unsure of the set up when I got there. There was no set schedule of talks for the day; instead, everyone was invited to put a notecard on the board with the name of the session they wanted to run. Some people had prepared slides for these, while other sessions would be in the form of discussions based on topical ideas that people were interested in.
After arriving and filling up on the impressive breakfast spread, I soon got talking to a number of people I’d either met before, was introduced to for the first time or had been speaking to on Twitter for years, but never met in person, making me feel right at home.
