Joining the Community

We are thrilled you have decided to join our community. We have a growing Slack community where current and aspiring analytics leaders discuss and share lessons and challenges from their experience working with data.

If you have not already, please reach out to ask for an invite to our Slack group.

Once you have received your invite, please do the following:

In Slack, remember that channels are free. If you want to start a conversation on a topic that doesn’t have a channel dedicated to it, you can create a channel and invite others to join you.

Inviting Others

If you are already a member of the Slack group, we encourage you to invite other like-minded current or aspiring analytics leaders using Slack’s “invite people” feature yourself! We only ask that you respect our mission of maintaining a sense of community and refrain from email / Facebook / LinkedIn blasts to a mass audience. We trust that everyone will act reasonably in how they contribute to building and growing our community.

Contributing to the Blog

We are very excited to publish blog posts from current and future analytics leaders on LocallyOptimistic.

A few ground rules:

If you have an idea for a post you would like to write, reach out to someone from the editorial team on slack, and we will add you to our #authors channel where we collaborate on preparing posts for publication.

If you want to workshop post ideas, we have a channel for that in the slack group at #post-ideas. If you have other questions or concerns, please reach out on slack.
