Data Field Day #1

When I accepted my invitation to Data Field Day #1, I took some time to thing about how I wanted to blog about this event. I made the decision early on that I wanted to do a prep post about each vendor. Not just for those who read this blog, but for myself. The amount of research needed to write an informative blog post, would give me the knowledge I need to walk in to these presentations with confidence, and good quality questions to ask.
This is the first post in a series that will cover each vendor that is presenting during Data Field Day #1. I’m going to keep each company’s posts formatted basically the same. They will each have answers for “Who?”, “What?”, and “Why?”. Each company will have an introductory post to introduce you to “Who?” they are. They will also have a post about “What?” they presented that will have the live stream of the presentation on it, where I will be live blogging. After their presentation, I will write one last post to cover “Why?” and review what they covered and my thoughts on what they covered. So if you’re keeping track at home, that’s three separate blog posts for each company, that will give you the answers to the three questions.
I will use this post to link to all of the other posts. Eventually, once everything is up, I’m hoping to make this a landing page for all of the posts to be linked from.
