The most meaningful brand communications put people first. They understand the platform where their content is being consumed. They make a person feel differently about a brand. It’s not intrusive or and interruption, it’s an augmentation of the experience the person is already having.

A good content strategy for marketers takes a brand’s business and communications goals and transforms them from ads (intrusive) to stories (interactive) to connect with people in a meaningful way. In this class we'll learn how to define a brand’s thematic strategy and how to connect business goals to formats and larger cultural themes and topics. You'll leave knowing how to lay the foundation for creating content and how to activate across digital channels.

Pick the right direction Careers opportunities that create a positive social impact exist in more places than ever before, but they're hard to find. Should you join a startup, get into politics, or apply to nonprofit -- or perhaps you've heard of the Social Enterprise/Benefit Corporation movement? We'll talk about different opportunities across all sectors, and do a live workshop on how you can use your skills and experience to find a career path with more purpose.

Gain the skills and experience to earn your job Once you decide on a direction, you'll need to build your skills and experience to earn a seat at the table. We'll talk about low-hanging fruit that you can work on while keeping the job you have to enhance your professional capabilities and profile.

Stand our in the interview process Lastly, we'll share tools and resources so that you'll be equipped to improve your resume, interview like a rockstar, and prepare to negotiate.

SPEAKER
Martin Görner, Google Cloud AI, Developer Advocate

ABSTRACT
Google's Tensor Processing Units (TPUs) are revolutionizing the way data scientists work. Week-long training times are a thing of the past and many models can now be trained in minutes in a notebook. Agility and fast iterations are bringing neural networks into regular software development cycles and many developers are ramping up on machine learning. This session will introduce TPUs, then dive deep into their microarchitecture secrets. It will also show you how to use them in your day-to-day projects to iterate faster. In fact, we will not just demo but train most of the models presented in this session on stage in real time, on TPUs.

Daniel Goleman identifies coaching as the most effective management style, and yet the least practiced. Coaching is a way of helping members of your team solve the real problems they are facing, rather than the surface ones. Coaching promotes self-sufficiency and can significantly improve individual and team performance. In today's business environment where employees have a lot of choice about where they work, coaching can create a deep manager-employee relationship built around trust, and gives you the capability to develop your team.

In this panel, we'll hear from three perspectives on coaching: an expert coach, a manager successfully deploying coaching and an HR leader.

Seattle Web App Developers Group

Speaker: Dave Karow, Split Software

Abstract: How do companies like Netflix, LinkedIn, and booking.com crush it year after year? Yes, they release early and often. But they also build control and observability into their CD pipeline to turn releases into results.

Progressive delivery and the statistical observation of real users (sometimes known as “shift right testing” or “feature experimentation”) are essential CD practices. They free teams to move fast, control risk and focus engineering cycles on work that delivers results, not just releases.

Learn implementation strategies and best practices for adding control and observability to your CD pipeline: Where should you implement progressive delivery controls: front-end or back-end? Why balancing centralization/consistency and local team autonomy in your implementation will increase the odds of achieving results you can trust and observations your teams will act upon. What two pieces of data make it possible to attribute system and user behavior changes to any deployment? How “guardrail” metrics can automate observability of unintended consequences of deployments, without adding overhead to teams making changes or tasking your exploratory testers and data scientists to go looking for them.

Bio: As Continuous Delivery Evangelist at Split Software, Dave focuses on strategies that connect progressive delivery with the observation of system health, user experience and user behavior. Before Split.io, he spent 3 years at BlazeMeter democratizing "shift left" performance testing. Dave has given talks at AWS re:Invent and Jenkins World, launched the "JMeter Academy" tutorial series and lead transformation talks for large audiences at major banks, insurance companies, entertainment brands and startups of all stripes.

Schedule:
Doors open at 6:00 pm. Food arrives around 6:05. Presentation starts at 6:30.

**Automation, AI, and Virtual Economies**

Automation and Artificial Intelligence lower the bar each day on what jobs are considered "low-skill work" (defined as work that can be fully displaced by a machine operator). As the future nears, individuals will need to find other methods to generate and secure wealth (money, status, relationships, and lifestyle).

The popularization of gaming has already shaped large factions of society. Social media and many professional tools have already undergone a process of gamification to meet the expectations of individuals (which were molded through their own experiences playing games). "Play" as a lifestyle will only continue to become more relevant and immersive as time goes on.

As synthetic worlds continue to emerge, it is rational to imagine that they will compete for our attention in dramatic ways. People may, in fact, leave the real world in a mass exodus; their attention and wealth will be primarily focused on synthetic worlds to the extent that GDP may literally drain into them from nation-states.

But there is a threat ahead. If we allow these synthetic worlds to be developed solely by corporate interests, we will almost certainly find ourselves in more addictive and manipulative behavior control loops than we find ourselves in presently (see social media). Additional decentralized infrastructure is required to neutralize this threat and maintain a healthy balance of human values.

Intellectual Property is the battlefront where this clash will be fought. It is the medium where our attention will be focused. Just like purist blockchain enthusiasts call for Decentralized Finance (#DeFi) to dismantle financial powers, we must also demand innovation in Decentralized Intellectual Property (#DeIP) in anticipation for IP monopolies.

True Ownership of items in virtual economies is the first place to start. And where virtual economies are currently the most relevant is in video games. Games will, once again, be the trojan horse that will mold human expectations for society. Once we have #TrueOwnership of virtual assets (NFTs), we can iterate through #DeIP, until we can safely opt-in to making a #MassExodus.
