Github will be presenting: Working Better Together Than Alone with GitHub


Topics to cover:

  • How do you work across multiple teams when you don't "have permission" to work on the project
  • Ship Early, Ship Often
  • How do we bring people of multiple expertise to the discussion?
  • How do you convince someone to work on your product? (Starting new ideas, getting people behind it, etc)
  • What is ChatOps and how do we leverage its power for getting ahead of problems, fixing current problems, and strengthening culture
  • No Parents, or how you can all split the task of manager
  • Team Expansion (also ties into self governance)
  • Streaming Eagles and making remote workers feel like part of the team
    • Also when people are traveling, how they can feel like they're not missing out

6:30 - 7:00 Party starts, networking 
7:00 - 8:00 Talk + Q&A 
8:00 - 8:30: Networking continues 

Pizza and drinks provided!

    Really good! I thought this might be a tech talk. But it turned out be something better. The sales person from GitHub spoke about his company and how they accomplish their goals in the open-source community.

    Wish I could go but it's too far from me and I have no transportation. Next time though!

    I would like to come, but I am not very clear on the location. It says "Needs a location" and the description includes "Right across the street from Sunnyvale Train Station". Where is this going to be held?

      Hi Sam, sorry for the confusion. The address is 100 Mathilda Place, Sunnyvale

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.
