Yesterday, I sat down for an investor update meeting at a very special company.
I was the only guy in the meeting. There were two female investors at the meeting and the two female cofounders. Visually, the company's space was unlike any startup place I'd ever seen before. The office was bright and colorful, with stylish, yet comfortable furniture. Every last detail was well considered, and designed to make me feel comfortable--well, mostly.
I banged my knee on the small round cafe table in front of me--and, while I'm thinking about it, I couldn't quite lean back against the wall next to the window seat either. I could, but it was just a few inches too far behind me not to look awkward. It wasn't quite designed for the typical VC manspread position I would have taken up in a startup meeting.
This space, a bright work, meeting and social space on 20th and Broadway was made for them--inspiring, entergetic, upwardly mobile entreprenurial and impactful women. I was just a guest on an off day, and a supremely happy and proud investor in The Wing, along with Nisha Dua and Susan Lyne of BBG Ventures.
Are you looking to learn from successful sales leaders at Invision, Namely, and Bettercloud? Are you a CRO, Sales Exec or just starting out as an SDR. Stackup Talks has a session on sales from experienced pros talking about best practices and the sales structure and learnings from their organizations.
IoT is here today in devices, sensors, cloud services, and data. While it’s easy to connect a few devices to the cloud and send telemetry data, how do you scale this to hundreds or thousands or millions of devices? Learn more about considerations in establishing a flexible cloud-based approach that enables enterprises to capitalize on IoT by gathering, storing, and processing data centrally. We’ll also have an overview of Azure IoT Services including telemetry ingestion in IoT Hubs, near-real time stream analytics, reliable, bi-directional communication, device registration & security, transient or permanent storage, data processing, and finally presentation & visualization. We’ll touch on how Microsoft's open position on IoT and how Azure IoT Hubs support a broad set of devices, operating systems like Linux, Windows, mbed & TI RTOS, as well as protocols like HTTPS, MQTT and AMQPS. Thank you to our sponsor Microsoft
This fall we will run a workshop focused on developing apps for the new iMessage app store launching in early September. The new app store will allow users to download 3rd party apps that appear and can be used inside of iMessage. In this workshop we will build a simple iMessage sticker pack. We will do this by exploring the new Messages framework together and will use this new iOS ecosystem as a lens for learning more about iOS engineering and iOS product development.

iOSoho - New York City's largest iOS Engineer Meetup
[Visit the event's page for address]
This event targets groups that are underrepresented in the iOS community: women (trans and cis), trans men, and genderqueer folks who are iOS developers. SPEAKERS: Refactoring At Scale: What happens when we apply new ideas to a large code base? I will walk through how I shipped a large refactoring to the LinkedIn iOS app. We'll learn how to validate our ideas, search through code with Xcode and ag, use a lab notebook to track test failures and create a code review that people will want to ship. Then we'll see that these ideas can be applied to any change we make, not just large scale refactorings. Veronica Ray is an iOS engineer at LinkedIn on the Video team. A Timeless Way of Building: Kathy Tafel is Director of Mobile Engineering at Meetup where she leads the iOS and Android engineering teams. She’ll be talking about launching the new Meetup app, including things she contributed to specifically, such as continuous integration and deployment using Xcode server bots. Learn a few shell scripts that can make your life easier. Hear about their awesome decision to go all in on swift.

Pivotal Labs 625 Avenue of Americas, 2nd Floor - New York, NY
Algorithmic/generative techniques have much to offer the composer, but you need an expressive language with good libraries and the ability to generate MIDI and/or scores. This talk introduces the "fadno" libraries, which offer a polymorphic Note type, output to MusicXML and MIDI, and support for using braids in music composition. I also demonstrate the methods used for composing works with examples of performed and released musical compositions. Stuart Popejoy is a musician and software engineer in Brooklyn, NY. He is an active player in the NYC creative music scene, leading the avant-metal band "Bassoon" and participating in numerous improv, jazz and noise projects. Notable collaborators include Sarah Bernstein, Mick Barr, Kris Davis, Ches Smith, Ron Anderson, Chris Cochrane and Brian Chase.

Every day we make countless decisions and judgements about people’s character, abilities, and potential, without realizing it. Researchers call this "unconscious bias." These biases are shaped by our identities, experiences, and a lifetime of exposure to cultural attitudes about age, gender, race, religion, social class, sexual orientation, disability status, and nationality. For an equal and just society to thrive, we must interrogate our cultural operating system with impunity to disrupt and repair where it inherently or systematically enforces different realities for people – privileging some while marginalizing others. Through design, we must develop an awareness of both the intended and unintended consequences of our cultural conditioning. This talk will explore how we can use design to mitigate the negative influence of unconscious bias. Rafael Sergio Smith focuses on product and systems design at IDEO.org. A designer and entrepreneur with experience tackling challenges from emergency shelters in disaster zones to agricultural systems in India and Africa, his work ranges from physical products to software applications and systems.

ProtoHack is back, and this time we're doing things a bit differently. This time, we're partnering with a few nonprofits, like weshelter.org, to tackle homelessness! This is a social impact hackathon. ProtoHack exists to show non-coders that they can create something amazing from nothing. We empower and enable the non-technical community with the tools, knowledge and connections that will help bring their idea to life and visually communicate it through prototyping. ProtoHack requires no coding. Instead you’ll be using prototyping tools, drag and drop editors, mockups, wireframes and anything else you think of to visually demo your idea on stage. Competitors will work in teams (up to 3) or solo. You have 9 hours to prototype your idea and then you’ll present on stage. RSVP here: http://www.protohack.org/events/protohack-new-york-city/
