Intro to Analytics

Do you know what features in your app or website are used most? Do you know what landing page converts more visitors? Is your company trying to become more "data-driven" or follow the lean startup methodology? In this introduction to analytics class, we'll review some of the cool things you can do with analytics to improve your product.


The class will start off with a presentation on analytics practices and tools you can use to improve your app, from Google Analytics to detailed usage tracking.  In the second half of the class, we'll explore a sample data set and do some hands-on exercises that illustrate data modeling and querying.

This class will be taught by Michelle Wetzler, a local web developer working on a new startup for analytics, Keen IO. There are no prerequisites for this class. Just bring your laptop and your desire to learn.


Thank you to Mixamo for hooking us up with a great location!

    Thanks Michelle for your expert knowledge and super friendly style. This class is perfect for absolute beginners in data analysis and analytics. I don't know much about web analytics, but have a lot of background in data analysis (in Excel) and found that a lot of that material very basic. I'd love to see a follow-up to the class focused on more advanced web analytics!

    What a great presentation! Thanks Michelle for providing concise and easy to follow insight into the tools, strategies, and philosophies of analytics. As someone for whom this was an intro, I feel like I got a lot out of it and that I now have a pretty solid grasp of the main concepts.

    This was a great intro class or people who don't have much experience (more of a refresher for me).
