I had the pleasure of attending the last day of the 2016 Professional Land Surveyors of Oregon (PLSO) Conference, which was held at the downtown Hilton in Eugene, Oregon. I was there to catch-up with a few friends and, coincidentally, teach a couple of classes.
Because of my experience with computers and the fact that I own and operate my own web development business, the PLSO Conference committee asked if I’d like to speak about Windows 10 and Google Analytics. So I did.
The Google Analytics class was a bit more difficult for me, but it seems to have been somewhat of a success. I wasn’t exactly sure how to approach the class when I was developing it several weeks ago. I ended up running it as a demonstration, for the most part, showing attendees what kind of data is collected and how to review it. One of my key reasons for doing it this way was to show attendees what information might be collected about them as they browse the web. It wasn’t just about how to collect and use statistics, it was also intended to enlighten.
