CS4ALL is looking for volunteers to help run the NYC CS Opportunity Fair coming up April 7th at the Armory Track in Washington Heights.
The NYC Computer Science Opportunity Fair (CS Fair), New York City’s largest annual college and career exploration event for public high school students studying computer science, aims to excite students about the myriad educational and employment opportunities that result from studying CS.
This is a high energy event that will really showcase the ambitions and reach of CS4All and also the accomplishments and engagement of the city's growing tech sector.
With 2000+ students and 100 booths coming, they'll need A LOT of volunteers to help us run the day. We are shooting for at least 100 volunteers to help with the day.
We're asking volunteers to commit to a minimum of 2.5 hours for the event. Some tasks (like setup) are as early as 7:30am. Other commitments are later in the day. Volunteer tasks include: running registration tables, keeping time for speaker panels, distributing lunch and gifts, serving at a "mobile help station," and directing guests to venues throughout the armory.

My friend and fellow Brooklynite Jonathan Basker is speaking at this Future of Work talk. If you're working on your company's culture and recruiting, you should check it out.
On Friday night, I got to see one of my favorite people, Sunny Bates, celebrate her 60th birthday at a surprise bash at Kickstarter HQ.
If you've met Sunny, you'll understand why so many people showed up to make this moment.
If you haven't, here are just to little personal data points I've got that have always meant a lot to me. Now, Sunny and I don't even know each other that well. We've had a few conversations and keep in touch a bit sporadically, but what I appreciate most about her is that she goes out of her way to stop and be human to others, even if she can only do it in a brief moment.
Once, I had a couple of professional misfires and was looking for some advice. She had less than zero time on her schedule, so she asked me how early I woke up. She said the only time she had was breakfast--but not to go out for breakfast but to pop over to her place super early in the morning before her personal training session for an omelet. How many of you have had a professional friend make you an omelet in their sweats before, because that's the moment and the place they had it in?
Sunny also shows up every year at an event that I throw--even though she's triple booked. She makes it a point to stop in, find me, and let me know that she appreciates the invite.
That's Sunny, and that's why I'm taking the time to wish her a Happy Birthday.
That and the line was too damn long at her party to give her a hug.
And now, back to our show... and by the way, Ben Affleck was surprisingly terrific in Batman vs. Superman and you should totally go see it. Screw the critics.
