At QSXX #1 we had so much fun we all decided we wanted to meet again, ASAP! Our second meetup will be Monday, August 5th

Square has graciously offered to host us!

 

Schedule:

7:00-7:30 food + drink

7:30-8:00pm large group discussion

8:00-9:00pm discussion in small groups

9:00-9:30pm wrap up

More informal discussion! Experiment planning, data analysis, and talk prep!

 

Details

-The event is on the first floor, so it should be accessible to everyone. -Unfortunately, there isn't public bike parking in the Chronicle Bldg*

-Building security needs a guest list with first and last names ahead of time - if your RSVP doesn't have your full name, just email it to amelia.greenhall {at} gmail.

 

Add to the conversation on the #qsxx hash tag.

    My first all-women meetup (on any topic). Great atmosphere!

      If you liked it, you might like the next AdaCamp. That was my first all women's tech event and it inspired me to finally get around to organizing qsxx!

    Fantastic start! Let's keep it going.

    Very bummed. A client meeting is going waay long and I can't make it tonight.

    • Amelia G.

      Bummer, Betsy! See you next time!

      Hey, we might be able to make a google hangout happen at some point this evening - we'll put out a tweet from @qsxxSF and on #qsxx hash tag if we are able to. Since this is a pretty unconference-style, small group discussion event we'll have to see how it goes!

I know I've been hearing a lot of interest from NYC about starting a group out there, so maybe we can chat about that next week too.

    Can't come anymore tonight :( Hope there will be another meetup soon.

    August 5, 2013

    • Amelia G.

      See you at the next one, Sonja! Feel free to chat us on #qsxx tonight/this week! :)

    Unfortunately a child care issue has arisen and I can no longer make it, I will be checking the conversation via #qsxx hash tag.
    I look forward to the next chance to attend in person.

    August 5, 2013

    • Amelia G.

      See you at the next one, Ayori! Talk to us on #qsxx!

    OK, I am bummed! It looks like BART is going to strike and this drastically affects my activities away from home. I'm afraid I'm going to have to pass on this meeting because I won't know until the last minutes (Sunday night) if they're striking for certain. If they strike, there's a chance I may have to work from home, or carpool, or Lord knows what other means I'll be using to commute.

    Sorry to miss this wonderful event, but I'll sure be watching for future meetings!

    August 3, 2013

    • Kate F.

      Where will you be coming from? Maybe a QSXX carpool could happen?

      August 3, 2013

    • Erin Q.

      I am happy to give a ride from the eastbay if anyone needs it.

      August 4, 2013

  • Valerie L.

    Is anyone else going to the IDEA Fitness Conference in LA next week?

    August 4, 2013

  • Belinda l.

    Looking forward to it! Great idea to bring QS women together!

    I'm so sad. Something came up in the South Bay that evening, and I don't think I can make it in time. I hope these happen with greater frequency, and that I won't miss the next one!

    Did we decide to do a potluck?

    July 24, 2013

    • Amelia G.

      Square is going to provide food! Kate and I are going to bring some more wine and fizzy water. Perhaps a few more people could bring a bottle of wine or other drinks?

      July 26, 2013

    • Maria B.

      I'll bring a bottle of wine and water too.

    Looks like this is very close to where I work and to BART connections. I'll have a couple of hours to kill before it starts so, if anyone else is in the area and has suggestions on a good way to spend that couple of hours, I'm open!

    July 20, 2013

    • Amelia G.

      I bet you could get some takers on a pre-meetup dinner group or happy hour. Or you could come at 6:30 and hang out with the set up crew!

      July 22, 2013

    • Jeanine W.

      Kitty, I'll probably be up for dinner beforehand.

  • ilana

    hi,
    i am new to the media and need some initiation help, anyone?

    July 18, 2013

    • Amelia G.

      What kind of help are you looking for? I'm sure that there are plenty of people who could suggest interesting things to read or look at, with a little more context/direction.

      July 18, 2013

    • Maria B.

      Ilana,

      You could start with this "getting started" post form the QS site, for one:

      http://quantifiedself...­

      But you could also start with asking yourself what it is that you hope to do with the information tracking will enable you to do. That is, are you looking to improve your health, change patterns in your life, build something in which the missing element requires better self knowledge, etc. On a more practical level, are you interested in tracking devices and apps for keeping health data? In that case you can look at Fitbit, the Nike+ FuelBand (for devices) LoseIt, RunKeeper, Strava MyFitnessPal, etc. for apps.

      Hope this helps.

    Last night was great! Wonderful to be with so many interesting women doing so many interesting things. Thank you Amelia for putting this together! I'm really looking forward to the next one and many more.
