Convince Your Manager

You want to attend Strata + Hadoop World. You know it will help you work smarter, and accelerate your career. All you need to do is convince your boss. We’ve put together this list of tools that can help you get approval to attend.

Before the Conference: Build Support for Your Attendance

During the Conference: Track Your Participation

  • The conference website has useful features to help keep track of your participation. Use the Personal Schedule feature to track the sessions you attend (you must be registered to access the Personal Schedule).
  • A few weeks before the conference, you'll receive a notification when the Attendee Directory becomes available, so you can start to note and contact the people you're interested in meeting.
  • During the conference, post about the sessions you attend on your social media channels. You’ll gain new followers, grow your network, and your colleagues will see what you're learning. The official Twitter conference hashtag is #StrataHadoop

After the Conference: Create a Report and Share What You Learned

  • After the conference, you'll receive an email with links listing the sessions you attended and people you've met (if you've marked them in your Personal Scheduler and Attendee Directory).
  • Review your posts after the conference to recap.
  • Use this information and the Conference Trip Report Template to create a report detailing what you learned. Supplement your own materials with speaker slides and keynote videos, posted during and after the conference. Search for news articles, blog posts, and #StrataHadoop tweets for additional reference materials to include.
  • The 3-day All Access Pass also comes with a Complete Video Compilation of all recorded presentations, so you can watch them with colleagues who were unable to attend.
