Back by popular demand - Topic Workshops

To get the summer started, we will have a more relaxed session this time focused on people meeting each other and sharing expertise in a semi-structured setting.

Instead of having a formal speaker, we will do several mini-workshops on several topics. We will split up into several groups, based on a particular topic. Each group will bring up some issues / challenges that some of the people are interested in, and discuss it for 20-25 minutes. Every 25 minutes a new topic will be picked, and new groups are formed.

Topics to be decided / voted on, here are some potential ideas (we will probably end up doing three topics):

Process - Lean, Agile, QA, UX, Product Managerial - Managing, Hiring, Motivating, Networking Size-based challenges - Army of One, Scaling, Big Data By Stack - Ruby, LAMP, .NET, Java, Python By Industry - eCommerce, AdTech, Analytics, Content

We've done this format about half a year ago, and had a really great time.

Please come with some of your challenges or areas you' like to learn more about.

After the session, as usual, a group of us will go to a local bar nearby (CorkBuzz - http://www.corkbuzz.com/ ).
