Office Hours

[Note: We've moved this weeks meetup to the Credit Suisse conference room.]

We'll be hosting the first of our weekly office hours. By RSVPing, you're committing to spend the hour helping to advise a non-technical person on their technical challenges. We expect the questions will be around technical recruiting, vetting third party services and strategic planning. Whoever signs up for our office hour will be expected to fill out a survey ahead of time so we know exactly what they want to discuss and can dive right in.

To ensure an efficient discussion, we're limiting each meetup to the first 5 RSVPs. Please feel free to sign up on the waiting list in case someone cancels.

Once we get the first few under our collective belt, we'll switch to opening up the meetup for RSVPs only after the survey has been submitted so you can preferentially sign up to advise on questions where you feel you can add the most value.

    This is the survey we'll use to prepare and vet people who sign up for our office hours. Let me know if you think we should change anything.

      Tom, good points. I've removed the last question, and replaced #4 and #5 with a single "give us some context" question. I do want to avoid spending time in person on background stuff. However, you're right that we definitely don't want to give the impression that you have to "pitch" us on your problem.

      The new formulation looks great.

    I added a page announcing our office hours. I'll ask Kristin to send this around once we're happy with it. It's editable by all members, so go to town. I'm going to send this to Kristin at 4pm.
