Recently, I've been talking to a lot of people about how they can make sure the members of their team are the best possible co-workers to everyone else in the company. Over and above bonus structures, equity plans, and mission statements is a fundamental agreement startup employees have to each other--but it's one that I hadn't seen codified until I saw x.ai's Team Pledge. It's about what kind of people they want to be to each other as co-workers. In the case of x.ai, that means joining a particular kind of mission. While lots of companies say they have a mission, very few get their employees to state what it means to be on that mission--and that agreement is at the core of how x.ai onboards their employees.
I spoke to x.ai founder Dennis Mortensen recently on the Startup Recruiting Podcast about the pledge and it was extremely enlightening. It's a powerful and inspiring statement and we discuss how it effects their recruiting process.
Speaking of podcasts, I listened to a really beautiful conversation between Ana Marie Cox and Jeff Chu, a gay Evangelical and author of "Does Jesus Really Love Me?" You don't have to be religious at all to appreciate the difficult topic of how to deal with people you love who don't agree with you. It's incredibly timely and well worth a listen regardless of what you believe in.

I can vouch for the fact that he is pragmatic, tenacious, effective, with a customer first orientation. He can see the big picture, but still gets things done! Contact Dave here.

Pain Point of APIs: Integrating with an external API is hard because documentation is not well written, format to find information is different per company, it's difficult to find endpoints. By the end of the workshop, you will have: •a solid foundation in APIs •an understanding of current API landscape •made your own API. Who are you: You're a curious developer with a power to ingest and create. At XapiX, we are not picky about our users - you don't have to be a certain level of developer or professional. We believe anyone can create. Existing developers will find the XapiX PRO functionality easy to understand immediately. More about the #PowerOfAPIs Hackathon http://x.xapix.io/hackathon.
An API-First Approach to World Domination In this developer lab, we will go from zero to world domination in just a few easy steps®. We will start by building out an API layer with the open source tool, LoopBack, that will be magical in how fast and easy we can build our own APIs. Then we’ll transition to IBM’s API Connect to orchestrate microservices, serverless functions, 3rd party APIs and legacy systems. From this position we can assume total control of the universe. It’ll be awesome!

Specter was initially released two years ago, and a lot has changed since then. Specter was initially created because of deficiencies with vanilla Clojure – programming with compound data structures was inherently complex and bug-prone. The recent 1.0 release marks the fulfillment of the initial goal for the project: to provide an elegant API for immutable programming on arbitrarily complicated data structures with near-optimal performance. This talk will provide a fresh overview of Specter and some insight into its implementation.

Digital Storytelling is evolving for brands, advertisers, film makers, producers and tech companies. The basic principles of “storytelling” remain unchanged. The execution of how to tell a good story has changed. New technologies have created new opportunities for advertisers, brands, and platforms to engage audiences and provide new contexts in which audiences, brands and advertisers can converse and interact. This cross flow is enabled by technology and how content is served up digitally (VR, AI, mobile, video, social media, web, video games, OTT platforms, and film). Hardware by which we tell stories has changed. The audiences we all want to reach have changed their content consumption patterns as well. What does this mean for the people who create the stories, the people who watch them and the advertisers who enable them. This is the Digital Storytelling Conference. Why you should attend ENGAGE: NYC The Digital Storytelling Conference - Gain insight to help map the shifting digital media ecosystem, Network with leaders of iconic media brands, agencies and companies, Get insight into your client’s next big opportunity, Collaborate and learn from storytellers who are shaping the future of digital content, Recruit talent you need to get to the next level, Leveraging technology (AR, VR and AI) for immersive and interactive storytelling.

Join us for a discussion of ethics and integrity in tech with a Senior Software Engineer from Google! Grab a soda, wine, or beer and join us for a special discussion with Michael Schidlowsky (bio below). Talk Description: When we consider ethics in tech, we often think about encryption, privacy, and hacking. To go a little deeper, Michael will use some thought experiments derived from everyday tech (e.g. trading off user privacy for profitability) to discuss how to measure and enforce your own value system. Michael will also touch on how value systems or guiding philosophy trickle down from a company's leadership to the code you will ship every day. Speaker Bio: Michael Schidlowsky is a Senior Software Engineer at Google and a Tech Lead on Google Sheets. He is also an adjunct professor at NYU where he teaches CS. He has written two books on Java and lectures on philosophy.

Please note that this is a 2-day event that is taking place April 24th - 25th. NYDS Members, you must RSVP through Eventbrite to attend this event for proper headcount! https://www.eventbrite.com/e/new-york-data-science-presents-intro-to-stats-tickets-33716799856. Are you interested in becoming a Data Scientist, but don't know where to start? The first two steps are to have a solid understanding of the principles of statistics, and knowledge of a programming language to implement them (often Python). Galvanize's Intro to Stats meet-up covers areas of probability and statistics necessary for anyone interested in becoming a Data Scientist. Main topics covered: Day 1: Probability, Probability distributions, Bayesian and frequentist paradigms, Day 2: Random variables, Statistical inference, Regression, Classification, Evaluation metrics. Day one begins with a gentle introduction to probability and the major distributions used in statistics and finishes with a concept-driven explanation of frequentist and Bayesian statistics. On the second day, we dive further into how to make use of probability distributions for inference and hypothesis testing. We then introduce regression and classification through the use of examples. Finally, we discuss some of the commonly use methods of evaluating model results. Although Python is used to illustrate concepts, no working knowledge of Python or any other language is required for this meet-up.
The NYU Prototyping Fund is a collaborative program offered by the Greenhouse Innovation Space at NYU Tandon School of Engineering and the NYU Entrepreneurial Institute that awards teams of students up to $500 in funding to be used to build hardware or software prototypes, and connects them with the resources, tools, and mentors they need to bring their ideas to life. At this showcase, the Spring'17 awarded teams will present their projects and discuss what they have learned through building and testing the prototypes. We will also have several teams from the Prototyping Fund Phase II presenting the prototypes they have refined during the Spring semester. To learn more about the program and the awarded teams, see here.
