Online meetups while we're all locked up!
We've got a plan to keep our meetup going during the COVID-19 lockdown and we're hosting presentations online via Zoom. So stock up your fridge and lock the date in.
Data & Analytics Wednesday is an informal, monthly gathering of people in the data and analytics, marketing and optimisation community that happens in cities all around the world. Formerly known as Web Analytics Wednesday Sydney, we've changed to Data & Analytics Wednesday Sydney to reflect our growth since we began in 2013 - and to better represent the diversity of the topics we explore at our meetup.
We meet every second Wednesday of the month to hear talks on what's happening in the data and analytics space, with plenty of time for open discussion and networking. Plus there's free drinks!

Compiling data under pressure: the story of covid19data.com.au
Juliette O'Brien, Digital and Data Journalist
When COVID-19 hit there was huge confusion about numbers. How many people were infected? There were plenty of numbers but they all had different assumptions and rules. Officially-merged numbers took days to give a national picture of Australia on a common basis. Frustrated by the delays and lack of transparency, Juliette set up covid19data.com.au to provide a common view.
In this session Juliette talks through the challenges of dealing with different datasets and what she did when datasets changed, moved and switched assumptions. As the crisis has evolved, she has continued to adjust the things she highlights and visualised the data in different ways to suit the changing needs of the audience. Her work has had a big impact, providing the basis for much analysis and discussion of the path the pandemic has taken in Australia and beyond.
