Chrome Developer tools w/Peter Wong and Technological Tolerance w/Ryan Gerry

We have two talks scheduled for January.

Ryan Gerry will give continue our bi-monthly series on the Principles of Product Development. Ryan's talk will focus on the importance of tolerance when it comes to cultivating technology experience in a software development organization. His talk takes lessons from biology and points out when and how a mono-culture can be a liability.

Anyone who has ever pair programmed with Peter Wong quickly sees his mastery of the Chrome Developer Tools. Peter will be showing us his tricks so we can all become more effective web developers.

    Thanks for all who attended. I have a few links. First, here is the link to my tolerance talk: https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/1v6YQkjqIzagiXJUUapd7SBvPJxxCDqDFz_04uKAQZhw/edit?usp=sharing . Also, Ralph Iden sent me a blog post about the danger of software monocultures from a security perspective: https://www.schneier.com/blog/archives/2010/12/software_monocu.html . I remember hearing about this study when it was released in 2003 and the blog post provides some more recent updates.

    An additional note: Someone mentioned a Google Analytics presentation. I'd be interested in that if you guys are considering future topics.

    Great talks. As always Ryan left me with deeper things to think about. Peter taught me many things about Chrome Dev tools. Side note: I am working on schedules with Ryan on when I can talk to the group about Analytics.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
