With 12,000 sq ft in Mineola, 8,600 sq ft in downtown Huntington and soon to be 7,600 sq ft in Great Neck, LaunchPad (http://www.launchpadli.com) is at the heart of the entrepreneurial renaissance on Long Island..
Minority Millennials, Inc. & LaunchPad Huntington will be joining forces once again to host their 2nd Annual "Ideas Impacting Culture" event.
This year we will focus on providing Minority Entrepreneurs (specifically Black & Latino) on Long Island an evening of inspirational discussions that will help you cultivate your business ideas. While our 2018 event was a Shark Tank style Pitch Night comprised of celebrity judges & six entrepreneurs of minority descent from Long Island, this will be a chance to check in with two of the participants to see how their year progressed.
The evening will be a fireside chat format with prior pitch judge Derek Peterson, CEO & Founder of Soter Technologies and prior pitch night contestant Justin "JT" Tutiven, Founder of Colored Colors. The Q&A will reflect on their past 365 days of growth, success and mistakes. We can guarantee that neither suffered a “bad” year and the discussion will provide meaningful food for thought!
Join us in Huntington Village for an inspirational evening of discussions and networking with like minded entrepreneurs.
This month, we will continue our exploration of Gatsby by rewriting our very own https://www.lijs.org website using Gatsby and TypeScript.
We will be covering many aspects of Gatsby, including:
- Bootstrapping a Gatsby app from a starter
- Managing layout and SEO
- Styling with CSS-in-JS and theme management
- Sourcing data from the Meetup API with GraphQL
- Sourcing data from local filesystem with GraphQL
- Managing images with the gatsby-image library
- Deploying to production using Netlify
(including the use of Netlify forms and continuous deployment with GitHub)
You are welcome to bring your laptop and follow along, however, we will be moving fairly quickly as this is an ambitious project for a three hour period. If we are unable to complete the project during this Meetup, we may extend it to the November Meetup as well.
Food and beverages will not be provided but there are plenty of great places to eat within walking distance. You are also welcome to bring food with you.
If the front door is locked, please go to the rear door as it should always be unlocked. If you are still not able to get in, please call or text[masked].
We look forward to seeing you there!
