The Mad Science of Project Management

DESCRIPTION
Managing technical projects for clients has never been an easy job. The complexity of software in and of itself is a hurdle, not to mention third party integrations. With so much uncertainty, how does one quote a project or determine a prospective timeline for completion? What are the best methods for approaching client communication or balancing production?

Join us for a special panel discussion as we dive into these questions and many more. This month's meetup will feature local PM heavyweights Eric Rosbury, Brianna Marshall, and Megan Norton; our panel will be led by GRWebDev's Sloth I. Prepare for an evening of delicious food and invigorating conversation at The Factory on Monday, February 24th!
