I’m excited to announce that we’re adding a new type of monthly meeting. Mid-month during the week we’ll have a lunch meeting with a professional web geek topic. The location and topic will vary but the format will tend to be “round-table” oriented. We’ll aim to choose convenient locations for professionals where we can talk and eat for $10 and fit it into a 1 hour lunch break.
To kick off the new format we’ll be meeting at Green Grounds Cafe in the Valley Junction area of West Des Moines. There is plenty of seating and parking and you can get a lunch and a beverage for $10. Meeting time is 11:30 on Thursday March 17th and depending on the size of the group we’ll either be in the cafe area or the back room. Please RSVP by leaving a comment below or on the facebook event page.
Getting it published: techniques and processes for delivering your projects
This is a round-table event, everyone is invited to join the discussion and are welcome to use the loosest definition of the topic. There is no planned speaker (though we’ll seed the audience with people ready to start discussions). We expect the conversation to range through any of these points:
- Ensuring the highest quality product gets published
- Steps for deploying
- Workflows that work (or don’t work)
- How to fail spectacularly or how to look like a hero to the boss or client
- Why Agile rocks or stinks – pushing the big red button just for the fun of it
