December Tech Talks

In December we'll have two tech talks, as well as refreshments and plenty of time for networking. Hope that you can join!

Bootstrapping Your Startup in the Cloud - Advice and War Stories

Andy Parsons, CTO & Co-Founder of Happify

A pragmatic talk from a battle-scarred veteran of launching multiple startups on pure cloud infrastructure. We will discuss pitfalls, automation and how to manage the costs of a cheap, robust and secure platform for your startup web apps and APIs. Should have wide audience appeal and everyone should come away with some new insight about the pros and cons of relying on the cloud for your performance, uptime, and sound sleep.

Building a Software Company in NYC

Meghan Gill, 10gen

NYC is emerging as a technology hub for ecommerce, media, fashion, and more. But is it possible to build the next Oracle or VMware in NYC? In this presentation we'll talk about the challenges and opportunities in building a pure technology company in NYC, looking at 10gen (the MongoDB company) as a case study.
