Tech Cities 2019

Minnesota boasts a growing number of tech businesses and professionals. Tech-focused firms occupy half the spots on the Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal Fast 50 list, offering an array of IT solutions, business analytics, and e-commerce services. Yet despite local resources, some companies have left the Twin Cities in search of tech talent and community.

Started in 2015 at the Carlson School of Management, Tech Cities focuses on the intersection of tech and business in Minnesota. Who's innovating? How is the state responding to the need for tech talent? What are the region's strengths and challenges when it comes to nurturing tech professionals and businesses? Members of the community share their insights on these and other topics in a setting that promotes mutual learning

We18 - The Worlds Largest Conference for Women Engineers

  • Minneapolis Convention Center (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

WE18’s theme, Let’s Break Boundaries is rooted in the notion that all women engineers, young and old, veterans, those in the early stages of their career, and engineers still pursuing their collegiate degree, are breaking boundaries both personally and for women across the globe. 

The conference itself breaks boundaries by being the largest gathering of women engineers across all major engineering disciplines. Facing challenges and breaking through barriers is something SWE has done since its inception in 1950. 2018 and WE18 will be no exception.

Any and all experience levels, ages, races, ethnicities, religions, sexual orientations and personal pronouns are welcome.

 

Who this event is for

  • Aspiring software engineers
  • Less experienced software engineers
  • More experienced software engineers who want to help

 

What to expect

Expect to meet other like-minded people.

When you arrive, you'll be asked to put your name & how you learned to code on your name tag.

There will be ample time to get to know each other, both before and after presentations.

  • 6:45 - 7:00pm: Welcome & introductions
  • 7:00 - 7:45pm: Presentations

Presentation

A Hiring Manager's Perspective on the Junior Dev Hiring Process by Nohemi Feltl

 

Introductions

Introductions will be done in a small group format. Each person will be asked to briefly introduce themselves and share an experience with something that's currently challenging them.

After 10 minutes, we'll break from our groups and move on to presentations.

 

Getting there

Prime Digital Academy is located at 301 4th Ave South #577, at the corner of 4th Ave S and 3rd St S, in the north building of the Minneapolis Grain Exchange. The building doors lock at 6pm, so either get there early, or look for a person or sign on the door with instructions on who to call to get let in.

We recommend public transit or biking - Prime is located one block from the Government Plaza light rail station, many bus stops (see below), and a couple bike-friendly roads.

  • Bus: the 3, 7, 16, 50, 94 bus lines run along 4th St. Prime is also a block over from the Gateway Ramp and Transit Hub, which is a terminal for many urban and suburban bus lines.
  • Bike: There isn't indoor bike parking, so you'll need to lock up outside.
  • Car: If you're driving, we recommend parking in the Gateway ramp, where we've got coupons for discounted parking. But parking is also available on the street or in the Haaf ramp.

 

FAQ

I'm an experienced developer. Can I be a mentor?

Absolutely! Our members would love your mentorship, but space at our events is limited. If you're interested in mentoring or advising the folks in our community, please email us so we can coordinate the best way to facilitate that.

 

Will there be food?

Yes! There will be food and non-alcoholic beverages.

Please email us within a few days of your registration to let us know if you have any dietary restrictions, and we will do our best to accomodate them.

 

Where can I get more information?

Lots of ways! We've got a website, a Slack group, and will be sending out emails to announce future events. But for now, just email us and we'll point you in the right direction.
