App Analytics with Keen IO

Posted on 01. Apr, 2013 by in Classes, Designers, Developers

What is the goal of your app and how to do you measure its success? 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 ways you can use analytics to improve your product.

The class will start off with a presentation on analytics practices and tools. We’ll review concepts like event tracking, A/B testing, segmentation, conversion, and retention. 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 data engineer at Keen IO. There are no prerequisites for this class. Just bring your laptop and your desire to learn.

Jamaican Jerk Chicken Night

Posted on 30. Jun, 2012 by in Classes

One of the things I love about co working is attending events hosted by the space especially the ones that are totally different from my job as a software developer because they are a good opportunity to try out something new. As someone who loves food and cooks every Sunday, I am always on the lookout for recipes I can try out myself and so last Thursday, I attended the Jamaican Jerk cooking class here at Citizen Space.

What is Jamaican Jerk? From Wikipedia:

Jerk is a style of cooking native to Jamaica in which meat is dry-rubbed or wet marinated with a very hot spice mixture called Jamaican jerk spice. Jerk seasoning is traditionally applied to pork and chicken.

It was my first cooking class and so I was very excited. I got to sit down next to Chef O’Brian Matterson during dinner where I got to learn a little more about him. Chef O’Brian learned to cook from his uncle and I learned that he serves the cafeterias of Foursquare, Yelp and Apple.

For the most part Chef O’Brien demonstrated the rudiments of creating Jamaican Jerk Chicken from preparing the ingredients, to marinading up to grilling. Now this may not be different from watching a youtube video but then I liked the fact that you were able to ask him questions like the proportions of the ingredients, to substitute ingredients or tips on grilling. Most of all, however, the smell of the chicken as it was being grilled was very tempting and it made us all hungry. Towards the end, we all got to try Jamaican Jerk chicken which was served with rice cooked in a broth of bean and coconut milk. Really delicious!
