This is a super relaxed gathering to work on anything you want, whether it be brushing up on your coding skills or working on projects. All languages and skill levels welcome.

Utah Open Source is putting together an amazing public speaking series for the local community. They'll have different speakers each month who will present tips & tricks about public speaking, tech presentations, etc. This is a great way to kick off the upcoming tech conference season and to help prepare anyone interested in creating a conference talk or just looking to hone their skills.
THIS MONTH'S PRESENTER:
Dr. Nancy Tobler - She teaches courses in public speaking, interpersonal communication, research methods, organizational communication and communication education at UVU. Check out her bio to learn more about Dr. Tobler.
WHO SHOULD COME?
Basically everyone. This will be especially helpful if you:
~ Are interested in becoming a public speaker (teacher, salesperson, tech conference presenter...)
~ Are interested in honing your public speaking skills
~ Are interested in overcoming your fear of public speaking
Even if you're not interested in doing a public presentation, speaking & communication skills can have a positive impact on many areas of your life.
WHAT SHOULD I BRING?
Nothing is required, though it is highly recommend you bring something to take notes with - a laptop or even just a pen & some paper.

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.
