    In the spirit of the evening's opening question about customer retention, the Founder's Notebook had a great post suggesting that customer retention should be viewed as a growth strategy. You can find it here: http://davidjaxon.wordpress.com/2014/06/07/why-retention-is-the-key-to-growth/

    Quick snippet:
    "At a high level, retention is more important than virality because if your users don’t stick around they are not able to invite others to your product over an extended period of time. If you have high retention and no virality you will sustainably grow your user-base over time. If you have high virality and no retention you will not."

    Hi all. I work at General Assembly and we are hosting an event that allows employers (and PMs such as yourselves) to meet and mingle with our Junior Web Development Grads.

    If you are looking to hire junior-level web developers (full-time, part-time or for a few months), come meet 37 of GA's most recent Web Development graduates. Employers will have the opportunity to chat with graduates, view their profiles, and review their portfolios and projects (plus food and drinks are on us)! Join us on Tuesday, June 10th at GAs East Campus. More info here: https://generalassemb.ly/education/junior-developer-meet-greet--4/new-york-city/5950
