Eastside Startups Open Coffee

Join us every Wednesday morning for the Eastside's premier entrepreneur, startup and technology networking event.

NOTE: We publicize this event in a number of venues, most people do not RSVP. We get on average about 12-15 people each week, sometimes over 20. If you only see a few people registered don't worry, plenty of folks will be there.

You will meet technology entrepreneurs working on their latest project, those looking to flee the so called Dilbert Cube world and just plain technology folks and local business people.

There is no agenda, dues or anything else, just good conversation and networking. Individuals can get help with their questions and problems as well as find potential partners and those can provide services they need. Lots of referrals for a wide variety of reasons.

Show up when you want, leave when you want. This is a fun networking event, not a meeting you need to be on time for. However, we do introductions early. 

WiFi is available.

General Assembly Seattle

RSVP free here: https://generalassemb.ly/education/talk-data-to-me/seattle/43996


About This Event: Learn about the business side of data science. Discover how companies, not only prioritize data-driven reasoning, but also leverage marketers who bring analytics to the table to develop cutting edge strategies.

Overview: In this discussion, Seattle experts will share how both sides of the business work together. Effective data-driven marketing is hard, but it doesn’t need to be. Analytics helps us make better, smarter decisions in marketing and in business. During this panel, you will learn what to track, how to track it, and what it all means. Come with questions and meet fellow marketers and data-driven decision makers.

What You’ll Take Away: Learn how you can leverage data in your role. Discover how and why data, when presented well, can solve huge problems. This discussion will cover real-world scenarios in which data has driven business success, explore how data can be a powerful weapon for problem-solving, and share their insights on career opportunities in data.

Why It Matters: According to a Forbes article, “2017 will be the year big data goes mainstream … whether gathering data on the front end or making big decisions in the C-Suite, every single person in your organization must buy into the value [data] analytics brings”.

This work is captured in a permanent exhibit on innovation that he produced for the Museum of History and Industry, his book "Storyteller Uprising: Trust and Persuasion in the Digital Age," and through various global gatherings. Hanson regularly keynotes and convenes conversations for major tech companies.

Seattle Web App Developers Group

Speaker: Greg Hurlman

Abstract: It’s been 20 years since frames and tables were the way to do lay out your web pages just so, and we finally have a way to do it that is responsive, cross-browser, and requires no javascript at all! We will take a look at where CSS Grid came from & what it can do, the new CSS functions and unit of measurement(!) that are here to support CSS Grid, where flexbox ends up in all of this, and where we go from here.

Note: If this meetup topic sound familiar, it's because it was originally scheduled for November but had to be cancelled at the last minute because of a speaker emergency. Everything is good now with Greg and he is excited about presenting on January 11.
