Tuesday, June 27, 2017 at 12:30:00 PM Tomfooleries on the Plaza 612 W 47th Street, Kansas City, MO

Event Date: Tues. 6/27/2017 12:30PM-2:00PM

Location: Tomfooleries (Plaza) (Second Floor)

Topic: Sherlocking Your Way Out of an Analytics Conundrum

Speaker: Tylor Hermanson, Sr. Mgr. Search Strategy, Intouch Solutions

We all say we love digging into data, but when traffic tanks and our clients are breathing down our necks for answers, we'd rather just have an easy button.

The bad news is there is no easy button to offer; digging into data can be an involved process. The good news is it's not nearly as difficult and mysterious as one might think. Take Sherlock for example. While it seems as if he's magically exchanging an overwhelming intake of information for real insights, he's merely taking a linear and logical approach with abductive reasoning (albeit at a speed that almost seems fictional).

This presentation will not only touch on some of the core principles and theory of data analysis; I'll be diving in the weeds with tactical tips you can use immediately.

Tylor has been doing SEO for the better part of a decade. In 2014, he joined Intouch Solutions, where he is now the Sr. Manager of Search Strategy who he gives strategic support to teammates and clients in the areas of SEO, analytics, content strategy and UX. He also runs a website called SandboxSEO.com so he can occasionally break stuff without making anyone angry.

KCSEM events are beneficial for networking with others as well as learning the the ins and outs of online advertising, SEO, PPC, Social Media, Link-building, etc. We hope to see you June 27th, 2017 at Tomfooleries on the Plaza! A $5-$10 recommended donation is greatly appreciated to assist with future events for our group.

Tuesday, June 27, 2017 at 5:30:00 PM Sprint 6050 Sprint Parkway, Overland Park, KS

5:30 - Food
6:10ish - Announcements - Aaron
6:20ish - What is DevOps? - Scott Howell III
6:30ish - News - Curtis and Aaron (unless there is another volunteer to take Aaron's Place)
6:40ish - Learning Katas - Dave Swersky
6:50ish - Using Git Beyond Source Control - James Aaron

Abstract for James Aaron's Talk:

Git's application is overwhelmingly for programming, but how does it stand up for other handling other projects? Novels, sheet music, chess games, they can all be tracked with source control. How does git hold up in application with them? Is it useful? How might diffs, logs, and commits change outside git's intended application? This talk explores my experiences in using git for novel writing, and looks at the hows and whys of what makes git useful for managing any project--including how to customize git to work with files it handles poorly out-of-the-box, like images.

Tentative schedule... we will just roll from one thing to the next but tentatively should lay out like this, this will be a loose meetup so suggest more content and things are subject to change base on feedback.
