We've moved our monthly presentation night from the 2nd Wednesdays to Monday, February 20th. Pivotal Labs Boulder is in the process of moving offices and can no longer host our meetings. They've been hosting our main gathering for over 6 years at their 17th and Pearl location. We really appreciate the support they've given to the group all those years.
Galvanize Boulder (http://www.galvanize.com) will host our presentation night now. They're just west of 11th and Walnut at 1023 Walnut St.
PARKING IS FREE THIS MONTH ... PRESIDENT'S DAY!
At 6:00 pm, we hold our beginner's track ... this month's topic will be a discussion on interviewing! ... success stories, horror stories, interview formats, advice, questions, etc. Dev's with stories and advice please join us and pass on some wisdom!
Around 6:30 pm, food arrives with time to enjoy a beverage and conversation with your peers. (Beer and pizza provided by Pivotal Labs (https://pivotal.io/labs)!)
At 7:15, we do announcements and get started with our presentations.
For our first presentation, Dan Moore will be talking about using Stripe, an API for online payments. He'll include an overview of the service, real code, testing, operational practices, and gotchas. Dan is co-founder/CTO of The Food Corridor (http://www.thefoodcorridor.com/about-us/), which has processed over $250k of transactions through Stripe.
Marty Haught will follow-up this talk with a preview of his talk, The Prototyping Mindset (http://cfp.devoxx.us/2017/talk/WVP-9133/The_Prototyping_Mindset:_Rapidly_Build_High_Value_Prototypes), that he'll be giving at Devoxx.us (http://devoxx.us/) the following month in San Jose. Though the talk is still in a rough form, he'll be going over several opportunities we as developers have to use our mindset to keep it lean as we build out a new application.
