If you’ve never heard of Birds of a Feather Sessions or are new to the Drupal community, DrupalCon describes it as:
Birds of a Feather sessions (or BOFs) are informal gatherings of like-minded individuals who wish to discuss a certain topic without a pre-planned agenda. BOFs allow groups to meet and discuss issues relating to regular conference sessions and talk out common problems facing the community.
Join us for our
two three BOFs. Descriptions below with time and locations:

We live in a data driven world where making decisions based upon quantifiable data can be the difference between success and failure. This BoF is intended to be an open discussion on gathering data from Drupal, integrating with analytics platforms and determining ways to improve how we measure results.
Discussion topics might include:
- How deeply Drupal can integrate with Google Analytics
- Where should data that we capture reside
- How can we collect data that is meaningful and that provides actionable insights
- How does Drupal 8 change the data collection/display landscape
If you're interested in analytics and looking for better ways to collect and organize valuable user data then this BoF is for you!
Hope to see everyone at our BOFs and ready for a discussion with like minded peers! Let us know in the comments if you're attending DrupalCon this upcoming May.
