Every week during the Flatiron School semester, 3 students will present a 20 minute talk and then we'll have an hour of networking and discussiong. Every Thursday from 7pm-9pm!

This week Victoria, Ana, and Laura will present their app, Prediction R Us, which is an app that let's you make a perdiction for the future and will email you if you got it right. It was built to learn about ActionMailer and Cron jobs using the whenever gem, so we'll be talking what goes into a Mailer and how to run scheduled, background jobs.

See you Thursday!

PS - We are only charging $1 to ensure that RSVPs are somewhat meaningful. All proceeds will be donated to an open source project or Wikipedia. Feel free to just show up too.


We have a special sponsor of Beer and Pizza (I know, sorry, I wanted Steak Tartare too).

Universum is building an environment where continuous improvement of the development process is in focus and where everyone’s goal is to deliver outstanding software as fast as possible while having fun.

Universum is very impressed by Brad, Nikhil, and Ari, and the quality of the Flatiron education and are therefore very interested in this years class. We are looking to create a new team in New York that focuses on building dashboards/interactive reporting tools for employers on the research data we collect, but also, on social data we are beginning to harvest in order to evaluate employers employer branding efforts online.
