Tracking All the Things

For the last two years, Chris Powers has led the development of Groupon's "Bloodhound" tracking system which collects and records user behavior metrics across the globe.

Throughout this process, nearly as many things went wrong as went right. Lessons were learned along this path towards "tracking all the things", and Chris will be pointing out both the pitfalls and the big wins to look for while building out a behavior tracking infrastructure.

    Great. Having slides made all the difference and I would suggest them for other speakers. I still believe the Meetup community for business is missing an opportunity by not audio or video taping sessions, and creating a library for business reference.

    Really good presentation, lots of great insights on the right mental model, tradeoffs on creating data versus joining after, best practices, whether to trust client or server side data (both!) and governance. Basically, this talk answers the question of what do I have to do *before* I can do all the really cool stuff in Hadoop, Storm, etc.

    More like this, please!

    I wish I could watch via webcast, but alas, there is none, and my meatspace coords are too far for convenience.
