How to cope with Intelligent Tracking Prevention?
In December 2015, Apple hired John Wilander for the Security Engineer position. Since then, the Intelligent Tracking Prevention algorithm was under construction. John claims that third-party data sharing is bad for the user and bad for the web. On the other hand, web analytics specialists think that Apple uses ITP to root out competitors’ advertising businesses, and not to protect its users from tracking. Prohibition of cross-domain tracking does not only affect advertising businesses but also businesses hosting websites on multiple domains. Therefore, it is time to act.
Apple released the first tracking preventing version inside a Safari browser on February 21st, 2019. Apart from restraining the cross-domain tracking possibilities, the algorithm limited cookie lifetime to 7 days. Each latest version of a Safari browser includes updates to the Intelligent Tracking Prevention algorithm. Usually, every new edition of a digital tool is more refined, but in case of a Safari browser, every version is more destructive towards the data collection.
With a May 13th, 2019 release, ITP limited all cookies’ lifetime to 24 hours. The implications of ITP are severe. If a Safari user does not return to the website within 24 hours, this user does not get the returning visitor status. Consecutively, if a session does not end with a goal within seven days, a conversion is not getting attributed to the same visit.
Discover how severely ITP affects your site and which solutions will help to solve your problems.

Acting on your analytics data in an increasingly cookieless world
Recent regulatory and browser changes are making it increasingly challenging to collect, connect & analyse cookie-based data. The future is unsure. Discover how data can still be activated within the scope of recent changes, and how some of our largest clients have approached this challenge. The recent launch of the App + Web Properties Beta in Google Analytics marks the beginning of a whole new way to unify app and website data. This talk will take you through the new cross-platform possibilities.
Listening to your customers: do you know what they really need?
In today’s rapidly changing society, it’s crucial to stay up to date on your customers’ needs. When you tailor new products to (predicted) trends instead of measuring customer satisfaction in hindsight, you’re always one step ahead. In this session, we’ll dive into social listening, a method for analyzing your customers’ needs, and see how our non-profit client RNW Media used it to support the advocacy work of other Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights organizations.

How to teach programming (and other things)?
Everyone should learn programming, right? Yes! But how... Should we allow children to explore and learn about syntax on their own, or should we drill programming like we rote memorize the table of multiplication or German grammatical cases? Felienne's talk outlines this history of programming education and didactics beliefs in programming that lead to the prevalence of exploratory forms of teaching, starting with Papert's LOGO. She will then explore programming education in relation to mathematics and language education and explore how rote learning could look like for programming. Felienne will discuss her own research into misconceptions and code phonology as means to teach programming more effectively.
