Anthony will tell the story of how big data and natural language analysis can provide insights in to what your customers and supporters are thinking, and how you can use data you already have and off-the-shelf tools to start making great, data informed decisions. He’ll also share some insights on Obama 2012, and how they used big data and people analytics to nudge the outcome of an election.
Anthony is GetUp Field Organiser. He's worked as a data-obsessed field organiser for Obama 2012, and as the online engagement analyst for the Australian Conservation Foundation. Before that, he built a funny website that took Hansard data and used it to answer the age old question: Is your pollie smarter than a 5th grader?
A brief history of website layouts, the code behind them and the beautiful future that is flexbox.
James is a senior frontend developer for Sitepoint. Tacos is his favourite food.
