Uber fuels hip-hop style beef with Lyft

I mustache you to switch to Uber.

Standing outside of Citizen Space, the birthplace of coworking, I see an infographic style ad billboard drive by encouraging me to “shave the stache”.

For weeks I have been waiting on Kanye’s response to Ray J’s “I hit it first” single but now that Uber has taken a direct shot at Lyft, my attention is on the private driver services.

This is the first direct attack I have seen to date and it raises a bunch of interesting questions. How will Lyft respond to this? Is this a good move by Uber? Is Uber willing to say they will quit driving forever if they don’t outsell Lyft like 50 said he would quit rapping forever if he didn’t outsell Kanye?

 

I guess the best we can do is sit back and watch this play out!

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.
