We are braving the SXSW crowds and gathering March 12th for our meetup, still at the Capital Factory, but in the classroom side (on the left when you enter the main door). Remember that SXSW is in full swing right now, so parking downtown may be difficult and/or expensive. If you decide not to come, PLEASE update your RSVP!
We will be doing something different for food tonight so we need an accurate headcount, and your help with this would be greatly appreciated!
Tonight we will start with lightning talk(s). Peter Wang will give a brief talk about "Neat/Insane hacks with the ctypes.pythonapi module". The audience is encouraged to follow along and blow up their own interpreters.
(Other lightning talks are also welcomed - if you have a topic you'd like to give a short presentation on, please get in touch!)
Our main presentation will be from Lisa Novak, who is presenting at APUG for the second time. Lisa Novak is an HR Director for a local litigation IT consulting company, with over 20 years’ experience in recruiting and staffing for the technology market, primarily in the Austin area. We’ve invited her to talk with us about interviewing strategy and tips. She’ll discuss ideas to market yourself for the job you want, how to prepare for an interview, interview styles and expectations, and appropriate follow up with the interviewers. This guidance should help you present yourself in a confident manner and land that role that’s the best fit for you.
Some of you may remember that Lisa and Danny Mulligan gave a great and lively presentation on the subject of Negotiation a few years ago. This should be a fun follow-up to that.
As usual, after the meetup, we will head to some nearby bar for socializing. This may be more difficult with the SXSW crowd in town, but we'll figure something out.
