Strata 2013 Santa Clara Tweeps
February 27, 2013
A couple of us (@deanmalmgren and @mstringer) just arrived in Santa Clara for the Strata Conference. We're looking forward to meeting people, staying aware of what's going on, and speaking about one of our projects.
To help navigate who's speaking and tweeting at the conference, we scraped up some data about Strata attendees and speakers that use Twitter. The following table shows anybody who has a valid Twitter handle linked on their Strata conference profile, along with whether they are speaking and the number of followers within the Strata conference.
To generate the table, we pulled all of the people with valid twitter handles from the conference attendee directory with a python script and then used the Twitter API to find all of their followers. The data was collected on February 25, and is not being updated as the conference goes on (and as people meet each other at the conference and follow each other!). We'll post a follow up with what this looks like post-conference, but in the meantime we hope you find this useful as you meet folks at Strata. Hope to talk to you soon!
