Gathering metrics from production environment and visualising them in real time can provide insights into the use, performance and roadmap of your applications.
This data provides valuable tools for tailoring your applications to your clients usage and finding any unexpected behaviour.

Ben Fields – A Case Study in The Data Science Approach: Finding the Perfect Beer (in London)
This talk seeks to bring some clarity to a couple of the most pressing questions of our time: what is this Data Science thing people keep talking about and where can I go for the best beer in this town. We'll attempt to define Data Science by way of understanding the methodology of its practice. We'll then apply this method to answer that other burning question, where can we get the best beer.
As usual, there will be drinks and nibbles and the talks will start at 6:30.
