Description

The Thinkful Dinner event is for Thinkful students, trials, alum & mentors.


Join fellow students, mentors and graduates for our monthly family dinner on the 23rd of July, Monday at 6PM. We will be having a team building exercise (Magic Show + Group Puzzles) + Designer AMA with Danny Crook.

As programmers, your job revolves around solving puzzles for a living. And if you've solved a CSS problem before you know it's pure magic.

Our next guest is an expert in perception and influence…and a perpetual student of the science of deduction. With a name too good to trust, Danny Crook demonstrates the truly enchanting capabilities of the human mind. Born and raised in Chicago, Danny lived and performed regularly in Las Vegas before moving to Los Angeles where he had the great honor of working with the creative teams for Ford, American Idol, Panic! at The Disco, Avril Lavigne, Kelly Clarkson, Mike Posner and Daughtry. Having revealed the thoughts of thousands of audiences the world over, he now calls Phoenix home. If all goes as planned, he’ll have access to them anyway, so please open your minds for MrDanny...CROOK!

The type of show can be summed up as a demonstration of the mind at work and ways that we can hack our processes to maximize potential. Through the manipulation of Everyday objects like a bike lock and an audience member's cell phone, we'll be doing a deep dive into what it takes to get into, make it in, and stand out against an ever-expanding digital Landscape.

Apart from being a Vegas performing magician, Danny is also a self-taught designer and UI/UX specialist here in the Valley. He will tell us how he taught himself to code, how freelancing works in Phoenix and all the fun things related to design.

Come in with a list of questions and prepare to be amazed!
