First AnalyticsCamp in Chapel Hill


Analytics CampHere's a crazy idea: if an event you want to attend doesn't exist, organize it yourself. Which brings us to AnalyticsCamp (@AnalyticsCamp), a free day of networking and learning for folks interested in any kind of analytics (web, email, social media, marketing. big enterprise BI, you name it). The plan is to attract a mix of different analytics specialties and stir.

It's a Barcamp-style unconference, and anyone can pitch a session (we have some ideas), but we're also planning to seed the agenda with some serious experts to make sure we have solid content. Sessions will include technical, business and career topics, from beginner to advanced levels, so everyone is sure to learn something.

AnalyticsCamp grew out of a panel discussion on measuring social media at a recent Web Analytics Wednesday. It's intended to be primarily a local event, building community among interesting people working in analytics silos in the Triangle. But if you'd like to join us from out of town, you're welcome. You could lead a session while you're here, too. ;-)

AnalyticsCamp will be held on Saturday, February 6 at UNC Kenan-Flagler Business School in Chapel Hill, NC (directions). Our hosts for the day are UNC's Marketing and Business Technology Clubs. Details are posted on the AnalyticsCamp wiki, and registration is open (it's free, but please register to help us plan appropriately).

UPDATE: Here's my wrap-up post from the day.


Sounds like a good program. I look forward to attending.

I'm in! Janet, see you there. Looking forward to learning how others are using analytics to improve their marketing investments and hope to share some of our insights, too.

I am really looking forward to this. I think it will be a great day. Thank you for getting the ball rolling.

Hi Nathan,

I'm sorry I missed this. Will there be a follow-up or repeat event soon?


Hi, Roger.

We're working on AnalyticsCamp events in several cities now. I expect we'll probably do another one here next year. We did talk about doing some smaller, after-work events on some of the topics, but nobody's organizing that yet.
