Why you need to attend Measure Bowling or how to organize your own

Measure Bowling will be back on the 2nd of June. For the 7th time, Digital Analysts from about 25 European cities will go bowling together.

Next Measure Bowling












For those who don´t know Measure Bowling or don´t work in Analytics it might seem like a weird concept. I have seen seen a few poker faces on friends or even my boss when I have tried to explain it / convince them to attend. But once they´ve experienced it, they agree that it´s pretty cool, and ask me why it doesn’t happen more often.

Why should you attend Measure Bowling?

Well, let´s recognize that our favourite part in a conference is at the end – when you have the chance to talk with others in a relaxed environment, and also talk with / ask questions of someone in particular, and of course, socializing.

Measure Bowling goes directly to this part since there are no talks. We play one or two bowling games, taking part in a local competition, but also an international one between the different cities. In most cases, it also includes dinner, (which is highly appreciated by the Spaniards) and some beers.

There is also a t-shirt competition, normally themed around nerd t-shirts. Unfortunately, I don´t have the pic, but the best one I have ever seen said “NO, I will not fix your computer” A few of us also wear nerd socks on the evening (yes, there is a pic for this). No white socks please, though! There are also prizes (books, toques, Amazon vouchers etc).
