• ***ONLINE*** Whiteboarding & Algorithms Workshop (self-directed, drop-in)

    Because jobhunting and preparing for job interviews by yourself sucks. It's better to do it with a community! Come to Noisebridge and practice whiteboarding, algorithms, and other interviewing techniques together with others!! =D (This is also a support group for job-hunters.) This event will be in the Hackitorium, and will be self-organized / self-directed!! ^_^ All experience levels are welcome. (Arrive any time between the start & finish times, at your own convenience. And leave whenever you want. There's no strict start & end time.) (For newcomers, this is how you get in: to go inside, please ring the doorbell at the gate, then go to the 3rd floor.) This workshop was inspired by "Whiteboarding Wednesdays" at Dev Bootcamp. ~~~~~~~~~~ My Personal Opinion About Whiteboarding Interviews: https://twitter.com/ThePracticalDev/status/716997357624287232/photo/1 https://twitter.com/mirror2mask/status/790779116395962368 https://medium.freecodecamp.org/why-is-hiring-broken-it-starts-at-the-whiteboard-34b088e5a5db But unfortunately, this is the world that we live in. ~~~~~~~~~~ My personal tips to get good at interviews: There are actually 2 different skills being tested in interviews, especially whiteboarding interviews. The first skill is public speaking / communication skills, and the second skill is technical proficiency. Both of these skills need to be practiced in tandem, and are equally important. These are what you need to do: 1) Practice public speaking / communication skills - Get used to speaking in front of others and narrating your thoughts. Going to whiteboaring interview practice gets you used to talking in front of other people, so instead of associating the emotions of nervousness and anxiousness with public speaking, you associate public speaking with familiarity. 2) Know your stuff - Be very comfortable and familiar with your skills, because it's hard enough to do public speaking, while trying to remember the technical parts. - Good way to get better at programming is to work on something you want to make, or work on something that you really care about. Example, I love videogames, and I want to make videogames, so that's how I got better at programming. ~~~~~~~~~~ List Of Resources: ~~~~~~~~~~ https://gitlab.com/BerniceChua/Whiteboarding_And_Algorithms_Workshop_-_Wednesday_Edition#whiteboarding-and-algorithms-workshop-wednesday-edition ~~~~~~~~~~ If you want more community-oriented events and other cool stuff like this, please donate to Noisebridge: https://donate.noisebridge.net/projects/Forever_Home_t8dKTgrb2p or https://www.patreon.com/noisebridge ~~~~~~~~~ Join the community! ^_^ https://www.discord.gg/JnfB58Z

  • Join us ONLINE to design and build autonomous robots!

    This event is a cross post from the SF Autonomous Robotics Meetup group: https://www.meetup.com/SF-Autonomous-Robotics-Group/events/265317474/ Feel free to join that group. I have copied the event description below: New location! We are so grateful to the Noisebridge community for opening up a space for our meeting! "Noisebridge an anarchist hackerspace in San Francisco", and is free to all, we ask that you be excellent to each other while using this space for the meeting. BRING YOUR LAPTOP TO THE MEETING. We will work on multiple autonomous robotics projects individually or in small groups. We may have guest lecturers and we can answer questions for specific projects. We can help guide you to pick a particular project of your liking. This meeting will provide you space/time where you can work on your project, ask questions or find other members to team up with! We have beginner to intermediate projects available. You will need to purchase your own materials but we will provide the guidance. For people who have advanced experience with robotics, a few of us are currently working on an unmanned autonomous quadcopter (drone). We have already built the hardware and are in the midst of developing the capability for a drone to move its position in space via voice/text commands! We're not offering jobs or providing recommendations at this time for jobs, please come to learn, to participate in building robots and to have fun!
