Please join us on April 18th for another night of self-tracking presentations, sharing lessons learned, and showing tools.
We'll be back at the beautiful California College of the Arts this time. Be sure to RSVP early to grab your spot! Talks will be in the Ignite Plus format (Ignite talks + Q&A period). Gary Wolf will be hosting. New ideas and connections will emerge, and lots of fun will be had. :)
Anyone who would like to volunteer, please write to me (Alex) at [masked]. It's a great way to meet people!
6 -7 pm SOCIAL HOUR AND WORKSHOP
Think: "science fair" for adults.
If you have a self-tracking project, gadget, app, or idea you'd like to share or demo, but you don't want to get up and talk about it, the workshop hour is perfect for you.
You don't need to have a prepared talk, or permission to show something. Just come and bring what you have. Just to be clear, we save the talks for personal accounts of self-tracking and self-experimentation, rather than sales/investor pitches. But of course we are also interested in tools! If you are making something useful for self-trackers – software, hardware, web services, or data standards – please demo it in this workshop portion of the Show&Tell.
We will also be encouraging everyone to talk to new people they've never talked to before!
7 pm – 8:30 pm QS SHOW&TELL TALKS
If you'd like to talk about your personal self-tracking story, please let us know in your RSVP so we can discuss your topic and how much time you'll need. In your talk, you should answer the three prime questions: What did you do? How did you do it? What did you learn?
If you've never been to a meetup before, you can get a sense of what the talks are like from watching videos of previous QS talks.

8:30 - 10 pm MORE SOCIAL TIME
Talk to the speakers, chat with new and old friends, ask other people what they're tracking, and generally hang out and have a great time.
