Come join us for our second Speaker Series lecture and demo! Please feel free to bring your guy friends/spouse/sig-o's also since this is an open event. It is recommended that men who attend be vouched for/sponsored by a CodeChix member (excluding Mozilla employees who are most welcome to attend).
This time we are hosting the following awesome speakers:
- Taylor Louie - CEO, Skill Addiction Taylor Louie is a recent graduate of Syracuse University, and a Founder for the competitive casual gaming website SkillAddiction.com. Having grown up in Silicon Valley with a steady diet of Super Mario and AOL Instant Messenger, she is a product of the digital age. Combine that with a fiercely independent spirit and business savvy, and you've got the perfect concoction for a gaming entrepreneur. Outside of games, she is also totally intrigued by social media; find her @t_louie.
- Jason Clark - CTO, Skill Addiction Jason has worked in just about every facet of web development since back when we all thought Netscape Navigator was amazing, WebObjects was the only Application Server on the market and tech journalists were contractually obligated to include the word 'beleaguered' in any article about Apple Computer. Design, programming, information architecture, database development, writing, editing, blogging and tweeting have all been a part of his career as well as managing programming/IS staffs and consultants, both local and globally dispersed. Jason has worked in the Fortune 500 end of the scale, as well as with startups, and three nonprofits.
- Lukas Blakk - Release Engineer, Mozilla HQ https://plus.google.com/117791572332002155814/about
