No Oscar commentary this morning, because by the time they come on, I'll be sleeping...in Colombia, after cycling 85 miles in the Gran Fondo down here. Let me tell you, that whole altitude thing--it's real. I finished middle of the pack--and considering that pack was basically 98% Colombian cyclists who bike these mountains all the time, I'll take it.
Meanwhile, did anything happen in the US while I was away? I mean, besides certain press critical of the President being barred from briefings, a repeal of transgender protections, Trump lying about his impact on the national debt...
One of the biggest unfortunate impacts of this administration is the promoting the idea that leaders can't ever admit when they're over their head and they need help. The quickest root to failure is a lesson that can be taken from the startup and corporate world--only asking for help when it's far too late.
There's a lot of pressure on people who take a new role to have all the answers--but no one does. Admitting that you need help is a sign of confidence, not weakness.
It's like saying, "I know I'm capable of doing whatever is needed or finding the people who can, but I've never done this thing, and I would be better at it if I could get input from someone who has."
I digress... But let's all do something this week. Ask someone for help with something. I know it's not easy to be vulnerable that way, but you'll get better at something you've either put off or you've been failing at, and someone else will get to feel helpful.
Just don't all of you reply back to me at once. You know plenty of other helpful folks.

In functional programming, types can appear in a variety of ways and forms, each with their own uses; phantom types and existentials types are two examples of these forms. This talk aims to explain phantom and existential types in a two-step process: first explaining the concept itself using a simpler language where it is clearer, and then translating the concept into Scala. The talk will also explain how these concepts can be useful in Scala code. Pedro Rodriguez is an FP Scala developer at Cake Solutions. He has many years of experience in FP Scala and Haskell.

If you’re a fan of DigitalOcean and its powerful but simple platform to deploy cloud-based infrastructure, you’ll appreciate CockroachDB: it’s similarly simple to deploy and provides your stack a lot of power and flexibility. CockroachDB is a natural fit within DigitalOcean’s no-fuss framework: both are for developers who like technology that’s easy-to-reason-about and lets them get work done quickly. To demonstrate the synergy between DigitalOcean and CockroachDB, this talk will demo how to build and deploy a distributed 3-node cluster in under 20 minutes. With a cluster live, we will then walk through some of CockroachDB’s core features (automatic data distribution and survivability) to give a better sense of how it makes your life easier.

Hi everyone! This is the launch for a program we've been working on for a while. 4 events, 1 set of panelists, 1 location. The events will be 2 weeks apart, and while each event is a separate unit, going to all 4 will give you a complete overview. Our panelists are all wonderfully accomplished, and they'll be sharing their experience, stories, and unique perspectives. Event 1: The Basics. We'll go through the principles UX relies on, what it looks like in practice, and what you should keep in mind. Event 2: Research & Discovery. How can we get information to inform product/design decisions? What do people commonly do to f#$% up their results, and how can they learn to avoid that? Event 3: Prototyping and User Testing. These are well-known and deceptively simple UX techniques, but they're so often done incorrectly. How can we do them the RIGHT way? Event 4: Iteration. Designing a product isn't over when it ships. How can we build consistent, scalable processes to gather data and improve the product? Our panelists: Jay Meany - Director of Product Design Digital Strategy & Initiatives at Condé Nast, Tim Jaeger - Interaction Designer at Google, Michelle Chu - Product and Design Manager at Alpha, Michael Redding - Freelance UX/Creative Director.
Share, learn and network with fellow Product Managers at The Product Group. Some topics to expect...Planning Product Discovery and more. Featured Product: Insticator. From Zack Dugow..."I'm Zack Dugow Founder and CEO of Insticator.com. We increase revenue and engagement for web publishers through an interactive trivia and polling widget that has advertising embedded into the experience. Our widget creates a rich content engaging experience for visitors in content websites that builds a positive exchange between all 3 stake holders (Site visitor, Site Owner, Advertiser). We work with big media companies like Warner brothers and Tribune Media to smaller startup publishers. We are looking for ways to incentivize visitor sign ups, to our widget, within our customers website and drive more interactivity with the product. Hope to see you there!

Submitting your App to the App Store: Zoufishan Mehdi, iOS developer at Healthie. Your product is ready but now what? iOS developer Zoufishan Mehdi will walk you through shipping your product to the App Store and lessons learned. Zoufishan started her iOS development journey at Coalition for Queens’ Access Code program. With a background in security and foreign languages, she was always curious about delving into the unknown. While analyzing her MA thesis in cybersecurity from a theoretical perspective, she became interested in the nuances that were amiss without the technical know-how. For her, that was the spark that would eventually help make sense of the world of theory with logic. Cassandra Shum, Lead Consultant at ThoughtWorks Cassandra Shum is a Lead Consultant with ThoughtWorks, who has primarily been leading and working in a variety of mobile projects. She has primarily been involved in IOS, Android and Mobile web applications that are supported on multiple devices.

Join us for this special workshop, lead by guest presenter, Joyce J. Shen (Global Director, Emerging Technology Partnerships and Investments, Thomson Reuters), that will define and analyze AI consortiums, their members, the research they're doing, and who the key players are. If these consortiums are being formed to address the good of society, why are they currently so secretive? Should the general public be allowed to participate in defining the ethics of AI and, if so, how would this happen? We'll also be reviewing the new 23 Asimolar AI Principles, published just two weeks ago, which are guidelines covering research issues, ethics and values (short-term and long-term) in AI including how scientists should work with governments and how lethal weapons should be handled (among other things). The document was endorsed by hundred of AI professionals including Elon Musk and Stephen Hawking.

“Machine learning is to big data as human learning is to life experience,” says Christopher Nguyen, the co-founder, and CEO of big data intelligence company Adatao. Sure, but then, what IS big data? (especially as it’s become a buzzword that captures so many things). Spotify’s personalization platform involves multiple teams in New York, Boston & Stockholm producing datasets, feature engineering and serving up products to users. Features like Discover Weekly and Release Radar are but the tip of a huge personalization iceberg. Prerequisites: This talk is targeted at more of an intermediate level, but advanced data scientists are welcome as we can go as deep as they like. What to bring: Nothing special required.
