Announcing our March Meetup Speakers:

(1) Ricky Bacon: VP of Engineering, Noise

Ricky has been helping companies create interesting platforms for over 15 years — from consulting with Perceptive Pixel when they were still working out of their NYU space, to leading JWT in creating the first social network for squirrels (Arduino project). At Noise he's in charge of the engineering department and responsible for spearheading technological innovation. One side project he's working on is MyLittleTweeter; it's an audio lifelogging platform that captures, analyzes and stores audio from his 5 month old son and sends notifications to a private Twittter account. Those notifications will print out on an IoT printer at his desk so he can have physical representations of his son's mood throughout the day (it wavers between happy and hungry).
