Let's talk startups!

It's time for the July web designer and developer meetup!

This month we will have:

  • Chris Quartier (@cquartier), Co-founder and Commissioner of Code at RecBob, a Cedar Rapids-based startup, will talk about his transition from working at a large corporation to diving in to his first startup experience, from using different technologies to different organizational structures, and what he's liked about both of them.
  • Steve Mitchell (@componica), Founder of Componica LLC in Coralville, will discuss running a software business and take a look back on his experiences being in the business for many years

 

We'll also go over the logo ideas posted in the forum to see what everyone likes. If anyone else has any quick concepts they'd like to contribute, please post them in the forum post. Thank you Kade and Eric for working on these!

Afterwards, everyone is invited to Gus's in Coralville for drinks.

    Startup mania at Iowa Web Devs. Great practical advice by our speakers.

    Thanks for taking the time to speak about RecBob Chris! I learned about quite a few new tools at this meeting. Great group!

    I don't suppose anyone is available to carpool/give me a ride to and from East side Iowa City?

    We've had a lot of new people join lately, which is really great! It's so cool to see such an enthusiasm for the web in our area. As always, feel free to give Karl and I ideas on topics you'd like to learn about or new technologies you'd like to see demonstrated. We really appreciate those who have offered to give presentations too! See you all tomorrow!

    We had the meetup on an automatic repeating schedule for the last Wednesday of every month. Apparently, if you update the title of one of the repeating meetups then meetup.com see's it as a completely separate meetup, but doesn't tell you it's a new meetup... seems weird. Thanks for letting us know!

    Why are there two meetups scheduled for the same date? http://www.meetup.com/iowawebdevs/events/73114372/

    Any ideas for presentations for Wednesday, July 25? Even a short presentation on something you're currently investigating would be great!

    Does anyone have anything they'd like to present at the next web meetup? Maybe a new project or new technologies you're using? We'd also love to get into more UX and design topics, if that's something you'd like to present. We're also likely moving it to Wed, July 11th at 7pm, but that hasn't been finalized yet.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
