Event description
It's Hacktoberfest 2019! Let's celebrate open source over food, drinks, learning, and great company!

About this Event

We're excited to celebrate open source with some awesome talks, food, booze (or caffeine if that's your thing), and of course a little hacking.

Hacktoberfest is a month-long celebration with events all over the world (but of course the best one is here in Philly) encouraging more participation in open source. Anyone can contribute to open-source and no contribution is too small! You can learn more about Hacktoberfest at: https://hacktoberfest.digitalocean.com/

SPEAKERS

--------------

How to Make a Diverse and Inclusive Dev Team a Reality by Derek Parham, CTO at JOOR

Derek has over 13 years of experience as an entrepreneur and technical lead. He was the founding engineer for Google's G-Suite product and served as its technical lead for six years growing the team from one to over 100 engineers and the product to 40 million customers. The project utilized and developed some of the world's largest scalable systems, along with shaping what is now referred to as "the cloud". Derek then got into politics as the Deputy CTO on the Hillary campaign responsible for the data infrastructure, engagement, mobile, security, and operations teams. He also serves as a technical advisor to multiple startups in New York City and San Francisco.

In his current role at JOOR, he is helping build a diverse and inclusive team that is bringing technology solutions to a fashion/retail industry that badly needs it. He is driving the development, architecture and operations parts of the company utilizing best practices from Google, startups and presidential campaigns.
