This is a cross-post to both my blogs.
Thanks to the ~200 or so people who showed up at last week's Data Scientist Meetup in Cambridge, Mass., hosted by John Baker. I gave a brief introduction to the concept of "numbersense", and was part of a panel of "chief data scientists" talking about how to run data teams. Thanks to those who asked questions.
This month, I am back in New York, and will be giving two talks.
First up is the Data Visualization New York Meetup organized by Paul Trowbridge. The link to register is here but it looks like all slots have been taken within days. You should get on the wait list as some registrants will eventually drop out. This event is on Aug 20 (Wed).
On Aug 26 (Tues), I am giving the "thought leader" presentation for the Optimizely Experience. I will be talking about statistical testing for online marketing aka A/B testing. The title of the talk is "Five Questions About Testing You Wanted to Ask But Didn't" unless I come up with something better. You can register here.
This will be a brand-new presentation, and I look forward to sharing my ten-plus years of running online experiments. See you there!
Also, please let the organizers at SXSW know you want to hear me and other data viz experts talk about visualizing data in Austin. Jon Schwabish has put together a fabulous panel with people from different parts of the spectrum, and it promises to be an engaging conversation.
To hear us, you have to vote for our panel. The voting starts today. Here is the link to the voting site (updated link), and here is our pitch on Slideshare. Thank you!
