The Insight Show strikes back in 2017: new date – 8th & 9th March, new location – Olympia West, and a brand new event organisation.

Of Askia Scripts and Functions

Of Askia Scripts and Functions

Introduction: What are Askia Scripts for? Or should I say what are their function? AskiaScripts were designed to evaluate conditions within a survey – at first to branch the survey and then to set values to (often dummy) questions. They needed to be easy to write (and re-read!) and the user should know at creation time if the script was going to succeed or not. The needs to improve AskiaScripts came as our clients’ surveys became incredibly complex – and that we used our language to produce our…

Quota: sticking to the script

Quota: sticking to the script

Nobody likes quota. They have the off-putting echo of a well-wishing community reluctantly leaving Apartheid behind. If researchers mention quota, it’s because you did not hit the targets. If a financial director mentions them, it’s to tell you how you went over and blew the budget. You do not like quota – and us, programmers, well, it was never our favourite part of the job.

I know some of you think I only attend conferences for the free food, the drinks and the social scene. They are right – no point in me denying. But in-between parties, I tend to heal my hang-overs in the semi-darkness of conferences. Coming back from the ASC and ESOMAR, there are a few new tendencies in the Autumn/Winter MRX fashion. Forgotten MROC, gamification, mobile research, Big Data – that’s so last year… it’s main stream, dude. These days the cool kids talk about Automation, Data fusion, Artificial Intelligence……
