Details

Winter, we hardly knew ye. Spring is here, and it's time to plant those seeds that will blossom in 2018. In keeping with the theme of new starts, we will be meeting in the brand new building at The Enterprise Center. Our speakers:

Duncan Miertschin - Bored Games Necessity may be the mother of invention, but Duncan will be speaking to us about how boredom can be the origin of creativity.

Duncan, a senior at Amarillo High School, loves public speaking and the sciences and always advocates for people to do their own research and for change. He has been a state and national qualifier for Speech and Debate, and is a member of the National Honor Society.

Bill Glover - Starting With Zero

Bill will show you how to take some of those ideas to the next logical step with a live coding demo. Take your simple web app ideas live for next to nothing and still scale fast if the idea takes off. Topics touched on will include Microservices, Serverless Architecture, Content Distribution Networks, Source Control and programming language agnostic development.

Bill has been building software for all kinds of organizations for 30 years and enjoys helping other people learn how to do the same better and faster.
