Yesterday I attended my first meetup event in Dubai. Given the recent work I am doing on our own Analytics and the event was titled ‘Web Analytics Wednesday!’, I thought it would be a good one to start with.
Dubai Digital & Tech is a community driven initiative of free meetups for knowledge sharing in the digital and tech space
It was hosted by AstroLabs who are based in a really nice space in JTL, Cluster R.
AstroLabs Dubai is the region’s premier coworking space for digital technology companies. We help startups set up a presence in Dubai and provide a platform for them to scale globally.
The main speaker was Rakesh Ramesh who is the Digital Marketing Director at Careem. He gave a talk entitled “Careem Success Story – Building mobile first companies to scale through proper measurement solutions”.
It was an interesting talk with some good takeaways however the more interesting thing for me was to get to see what AstroLabs was and what it was all about. They have three main packages which might be of interest:
Moonlighter 750 AED monthly – Nights & Weekends space access, high speed internet, meeting rooms, printing, office supplies, and coffee/snacks
Community Member 1,500 AED monthly – 24/7 space access with high speed internet, bookable meeting rooms, printing, office supplies & coffee/snacksOn-site mentorship + office hours

I am looking forward to attending more of their evenings in the near future.
