It isn't easy to type up a newsletter about startups and tech after a weekend like this.
Part of me feels like I got shot and part of me feels like I pulled the trigger. Hate makes us all angry and you're either feeding into it or working against it.
It's too easy to feed into it--to place blame and to further divide ourselves.
Forget about guns and Muslims for a moment.
Are you for or against the hate?
Those are the sides we need to be choosing... Today. Tomorrow. November. Every second.
That's what I wrote about. Not even sure if it made any sense, but that's the way I'll be thinking about things going forward. I'll try hard to be against the hate, but it's hard.
Are you a marketer who wants to share what your startup's team is up to in their marketing efforts? Next Thursday the 23rd we've got a slot open for a 10-15 minute presentation at our next marketing startup, where startups get to show off how they acquire and retain customers. Contact Marsha at firstname.lastname@example.org for speaker info.
AXA Equitable Center 787 7th Avenue - New York, NY

Do you hear everyone talking about Flexbox but have yet to dive in yourself? Flexbox, or Flexible Box Model, is a set of CSS3 properties for creating a flexible layout. By allowing a set of elements to behave predictably when accommodating various screen sizes and devices, Flexbox solves many of the layout issues developers have been struggling with for years! The days of hacks like floats and positioning are numbered as Flexbox allows us to achieve layouts simply and with cleaner code. With support in all modern browsers / IE10+ and just a few tools and strategies for older browsers, it is possible to start using Flexbox today. We will cover: •Flexbox syntax and how it requires us to think about layout in new ways •Flexbox properties and how they work •How Flexbox distributes space and and behaves for flexibility in layouts •How to decide if it makes sense to use Flexbox in your current project. To get the most out of this class, you should have a working knowledge of basic HTML & CSS.
This workshop will provide an introduction to testing. It is designed for students who know basic Java. To follow along, students should be able to write classes and methods, create new objects, call methods on objects, and use basic data structures (arrays, lists). Please bring a laptop with Eclipse IDE installed: https://eclipse.org/https://eclipse.org/

Stack Overflow 110 William Street 28th Floor - New York, NY
This 2 part Intro to User Experience course runs Tuesday, June 14th AND Thursday, June 16th. The class time will be from 7-9:30pm each evening. At its core, User Experience (UX) is defined as how someone feels about in the process of using a product, system, or service. Regardless of what we’re designing--a website, an Android app, or a tangible product --we all strive to make our designs useful. But how exactly do we make something translates our intention and purpose? How do we know if the target audience is having a good or bad experience? This class will arm you with the essential tips to find those answers. This class is for anyone who makes (or wants to learn how to make) websites, mobile apps, or other software. If you’re a developer, a designer, a project manager, a content creator, or something else, you can integrate UX research and design into your practice.

SPEAKERS: **Jane Stewart Adams is a data scientist, programmer, and writer living in Brooklyn. She holds a B.A. and an M.S. from New York University in complex systems and urban data science. Her complexity work has focused on emergence in complex systems, the phenomenon of relatively simple individuals interacting in relatively simple ways giving rise to complex collective behavior, for example, how ants find your picnic basket. She has explored this theme in her personal, professional, and creative work primarily through data and code. Her data science work has focused on how to use data to help people, which began during her masters work on estimating and mapping the unauthorized immigrant population of New York City. Since then, she has spoken publicly about how to use data for social good, and how data can be and is used against certain people. Talk Title: Administering Injustice: Why We Need Data Stewardship First. **Purnima Mavinkurve, Senior Lead Applications Engineer at Medidata. Talk Title: Evolving Landscape of Data Privacy in Clinical Research
Touchscreens are how we interact with many digital products - smartphones, tablets, cars, point of purchase, etc. Yet this experience is incomplete because all we feel is lifeless glass. Tanvas has haptic touchscreen technology that provides the same finger positioning data as today, but also delivers a rich touch experience that allows users to physically interact with the digital world. The company’s CEO, Greg Topel, will present the technology and provide insights into its functionality via simple application demos. Plus, Tanvas will be launching a dev kit in late summer and is searching for a select group of early adopters to create multi-sensory experiences that will completely change how users think of touch devices. If you’re a savvy developer with an interesting application, Greg wants to speak with you. Greg Topel, CEO of Tanvas with founders Ed Colgate and Michael Peshkin in 2011 and serves as CEO of the growing and venture-backed startup. The company is developing touchscreens that provide position sensing and rich/engaging touch experiences, by allowing users to feel what they see on display devices.
