February Meetup: Code Academy, Codiqa, SplitGear & More!

The Agenda:

Networking 6pm to 6:30pm

Presentation 6:30pm to 7:15pm

More Networking 7:15pm to 8pm

About our presenters:

We'll start off the night with a conversation, featuring Mike McGee, co-founder of Chicago-based Code Academy (http://codeacademy.org). Code Academy's intense 8-week program teaches you to be "your own technical co-founder."

Next, we'll take a look at a J-Query Mobile App prototyping tooldeveloped by Codiqa (http://codiqa.com) -- co-founders Max Lynch & Ben Sperry will be there to show it off.

Additionally, we'll learn about SplitGear (http://splitgear.com) from co-founder Paul Kauders. If you are an amateur or professional photographer with expensive gear that often sits idle, you'll want to hear about how to make some cash from that gear using SplitGear.

    Great Meetup, but I do have a few suggestions ... (1) when a speaker is only going to be present by Skype, it'd be best to let the group know that (by email, etc.) before the meeting as it was quite a surprise that CA wasn't going to be there in-person; (2) I think we should develop a standard list of questions that we ask, at a minimum, of every presenting startup (i.e., did you get funding, did you write a business plan, where do you work from, etc.); and (3) can't OpenMIKE get a longer microphone cord?

    Tech difficulties were annoying, but other then that, it was a really great time! I met some interesting people, and made some new connections.

    I had a blast! Thanks to Matt and the whole StartupMKE crew for putting together such an awesome event. I'm so glad I got to meet many of you and hope to meet everyone else in the future. Please keep in touch and let me know if I can help any members with anything - coding, finance, accounting, whatever! Thanks!!
