An example of a schema used by EventLogging for data modeling.

The workshop will be organized into a series of short tutorials (15 min presentation + 5 min QA) followed by a hands-on hacking session. The tutorials will be streamed for remote attendees via a Google Hangout (a link will be shared via the mailing lists immediately before the workshop starts). Coffee, cookies and snacks will be served during and after the break.
