Career Development at the October ODevs

October 14, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm


At this month’s meetup, we’ll look at career development for developers including building your leadership skills and launching a product. We’ll be hosted at the PowerDMS.

PLEASE NOTE THE VENUE: This month, we are meeting at PowerDMS.


Interviewing with Different Personas in an Organization – Joey Brodsky

What are the differences and things you should emphasize when interviewing with people in different roles in the interview process (i.e. recruiter, technical managers, executive team, etc.).

Taking the Lead – Jenell Pizarro

Sometimes we’re given opportunities to lead teams and other times — well, we’re tossed in unexpectedly. A guide to navigating through taking on your first leadership role on a project, how to speak up for yourself and others, and making huge mistakes.

Lessons Learned Building a Side Project – Andrew Kozlik

Learn how to launch a side project, hold a full time job, and raise a newborn without going crazy. Andrew will share tips and tricks to help you focus your free time into building a product you love. He’ll share growth statistics for RecipeBox and give you a behind the scenes look at the reality of running your own product.
