Startup Dojo Lunch: Should I look into working with recruiters?
Description: Most people have a pretty good idea of what it takes to find new employees. Word of mouth is often your best bet next to user groups, college career fairs and a KSL ad, but what if you need someone with a little bit more experience? Maybe even someone who's only looking for a contract position?
Professional recruiting might be a good option to look into. Too expensive you say? Come to a sponsored lunch with ConsulNet to see what it really takes to partner with a recruiter.
Lambda Lounge is a user group for passionate developers and CS aficionados focusing on programming paradigms (e.g. functional, logic), distributed and concurrent programming, abstraction, complexity, and other topics.
Rather than focusing on a single language or technology Lambda Lounge discusses a wide variety of topics. Programming paradigms with a strong bent towards functional programming will be the primary focus but any interesting idea or emerging tech is fair game. The group is modeled after the original Lambda Lounge in St. Louis and other various chapters.
We meet every second Tuesday of the month at Salt Lake Community College, Miller Corporate Partnership Center.
Description: The Google Developer Group of Utah (GDG Utah) is a fun group with monthly meetings. Each meeting is based on 2-3 different Google technologies. A few times a year we will hold a larger event. We cover all topics Android and Chrome related. The attendees are given a chance to participate and even present on a topic of their choice.
Each meeting provides food (usually Pizza) and access to the Hirevue breakroom, which is stocked with soda fountain, a fridge, and a few large shelves full of goodies.
If you are interested in attending Google IO, participating in the GDG Utah is the best way to help ensure that you are involved with that most awesome of conferences.
PseudoCode is a new GDI code & coffee monthly meetup where all levels of expertise are welcome to come and work on projects or do some knowledge sharing. This is a laid-back event, but we’d like to start revolving it around a theme, so we need your input!
What can I expect from this event?
This first session will be an open-house meetup where we gather some thoughts and ideas on how we can make these code and coffee sessions more helpful and enjoyable for all. Follow-up events may have a more focused theme or topic, so we can hop right into the nitty-gritty and start coding!
To give you an idea, these are some of the questions we’d like to explore at this first event:
• What do we want to learn in the PseudoCode & Coffee GDI sessions?
• What languages should we explore and to what depth?
• Should we have some language agnostic sessions?
PseudoCode is meant to be a relaxed event where you can learn something new, refresh your skills, or get your questions answered by people who are happy to help you.
All levels of experience are welcome.
In the future, we plan to also provide more pre-event resources such as links to websites that are helpful to the topic or even small projects to get you ramped up quickly and ready to dive into code!
How long can I expect this event to last?
Mestizos has let us reserve their more private large area that has work tables that are great for collaboration. We have a scheduled time from x to x in that area. After that if you’d like to continue hacking you can do so in the main coffee shop area, but please know that it could be busy and we should all be doing our best to be good to our host and their customers (ie, if you’re done drinking and eating don’t loiter and hack more for hours after - we love our host and want to make sure we can keep coming back!)
Are there any special driving or parking instructions I should know about?
Not much parking in the storefront area, but east of the building has street parking.
Very easy access from Trax.
What should I bring?
• A laptop (if you can)
• Some money for coffee and snacks. Our awesome coffee shop host Mestizos is being super generous for letting us use their space for free, so definitely show your appreciation by grabbing a coffee, tea, or snack while you’re there!
• Your brain
In addition to the PseudoCode event, this meetup will also be host to the GDI Mentorship Program. The will start about an hour into our event. Come and meet up with your mentor or mentee and get to know one another!
