MeasureCamp uses an unconference format and one important aspect of that: most of the schedule is not prearranged. That means, after the breakfast and the welcome session we open the session board, and anyone can then add a 30 min session on any Data & Analytics related topic to the schedule. But don’t forget: Sales talks are frowned upon at MeasureCamp! Sessions can be presentations, discussions, workshops or even game shows, they can be highly technical in nature or very business focused, and the intended audience may be for people just starting their career or with years of experience in Data & Analytics. Saying this, it is not required that you have to prepare anything for a session, it could simply start with a challenge you face at work or a thought you would like to exchange on with peers. You are not obligated to give any session that day, while we highly encourage it. Ultimately, MeasureCamp is run by the Data & Analytics community, for the Data & Analytics community, and everyone’s contribution matters.
Similar to most unconferences, it is a challenge for MeasureCamp to manage the session board during the day. Therefore, we distribute blank session cards to all attendees after the breakfast and the welcome session.
Of course you can already fill out our session card in advance. Just download the session card below, print it out, fill in the blanks and bring it with you, so you can stick it on the session board as soon as it opens. Please try to write clear and meaningful titles that are easy to read for everyone.
And no pressure, most session cards are only filled out and added to the session board on the day of the event.
