Her first career opportunity out of college provided her with a wealth of experience, the majority of which focused on relational databases and SQL. As part of Girl Develop It, she is so excited to share her experience and get more women involved in technology. She is the only female developer at her company and would love to see that change! Outside of work and programming, Jessica loves Zumba, running, crafts, and anything outdoors.   Tech requirements:  • Your laptop (Mac, PC, or Linux are all okay) and charger. • A modern web browser – either Chrome or Firefox. • A text editor. We recommend Sublime Text 2 (free; available for both Mac and PC) or Notepad++ (PC).

Teach us! * Curious about an API or technology? Ask the group. Someone probably has some relevant experience they can share. * Stuck on a bug? We’ll try to fix it together, and maybe we’ll all learn something new. * Working on an app and want constructive criticism? We can put it up on the projector and review your UI or your code. * Not sure about the best way to approach some problem? Let’s talk about it. * What are the most successful strategies and tactics for marketing an app? Let’s share what we’ve learned.

Sep 17 @ 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm
End of Hallway on the First Floor of Lyons Hall (Canisius College, Main Street, Buffalo, NY 14208)

This is our monthly Designer & Developer WordPress Meetup. Discussion in Theme Design, Plugin Development, advanced Security, and other more advanced elements to WP. This meetup is catered towards designers and developers. Whether you’re a designer new to WordPress, or an experienced Developer this is the meetup you’ll want to attend. A basic understanding of HTML, CSS, and PHP to get the most out of the Designer/Dev Meetups. Feel free to give it a try if you’re on the fence and you can also attend the User meetup to see where you feel more comfortable. Also newly added, is our rule during the Designer/Developer Meetups, of NO SEO discussion. We’re adding this simply because while SEO can go hand-in-hand with WordPress, it often overruns everything else discussed. We are a WP Meetup, not an SEO Meetup. If you’re looking for something directed towards content editing, blogging, and less development based elements to WordPress, try our User Meetup running the 1st Thursday of every month.

Engage and Maintain Millennials Workshop @ High Tech Rochester Media Center
Sep 29 @ 8:00 am – 11:00 am
150 Lucius Gordon Drive, West Henrietta, NY 14586, USA
Understanding Millennials, Your Future Workforce!
Millennials (individuals currently between the ages of 15 and 34) by the year 2020 will make up more than 50% of our workforce. Not surprisingly, there are some vast differencesbetween millennials and previous generations, such as how they view their work habits and define their values.

As a whole, millennials tend to care more about maintaining a healthy work/life balance and less about money. They expect to be given responsibility rather than earn it.

This 120-minute interactive workshop will help managers and supervisors learn how to confront the challenges this generation presents and uncover the employee engagement drivers that are unique to them.

Attend this workshop and you’ll  learn how to develop an environment that engages and retains them. Additionally, you’ll practice leadership techniques that will help you build rapport and gain cooperation.
Also available at our satellite conference rooms in Batavia,  Geneva, and Geneseo.

Buffalo WordPress Designer/Dev Meetup
Oct 15 @ 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm

This is our monthly Designer & Developer WordPress Meetup.
Discussion in Theme Design, Plugin Development, advanced Security, and other more advanced elements to WP.
This meetup is catered towards designers and developers. Whether you’re a designer new to WordPress, or an experienced Developer this is the meetup you’ll want to attend. A basic understanding of HTML, CSS, and PHP to get the most out of the Designer/Dev Meetups. Feel free to give it a try if you’re on the fence and you can also attend the User meetup to see where you feel more comfortable.
Also newly added, is our rule during the Designer/Developer Meetups, of NO SEO discussion. We’re adding this simply because while SEO can go hand-in-hand with WordPress, it often overruns everything else discussed. We are a WP Meetup, not an SEO Meetup.
If you’re looking for something directed towards content editing, blogging, and less development based elements to WordPress, try our User Meetup running the 1st Thursday of every month.

Launch Your Idea @ Cornell University, Statler Hall Room 265
Oct 20 @ 4:30 pm – 6:30 pm
130 Statler Drive, Ithaca, NY 14853, USA

Will it Launch TV logoWIN a chance to launch your idea from concept to reality with this prize package offered by Will it Launch, As Seen On TV. Participate in a national TV market viability test, which includes a 120-second     infomercial for the winning product – a $50,000 value!! If the market test is successful, Will It Launch will cover 100% of the expenses of manufacturing, marketing, and distribution to major retailers, and the winner will receive a royalty on sales under a license agreement.

Background

With hundreds of millions of units sold, Will It Launch is the leading Direct Response TV firm bringing products to the mass market. Seewillitlaunch.com. “As Seen On TV” marketing not only generates direct sales through 800# and Internet landing page sales, it also creates branding and awareness. “As Seen On TV” products are successful in retail stores, catalogs, shopping networks, internationally and online.

The goal for any “As Seen On TV” campaign is to get a product on the shelves of major retailers. Unfortunately shelf space at retail is just about impossible for inventors to get on their own.

“As Seen On TV” is one of the only sections of shelves in mass-market retail where a patent is not required. Speed-to-market and confidential market viability testing is critical. Selected products are fully evaluated by the consumer prior to full manufacturing to reduce start-up costs and risk.

Submit your idea here!
