Join us for Pop-Up Prototyping with a holiday spin. Bring your most exciting ideas for 2020 to life while being served lattes and festive snacks.
Pop-up Prototyping is a free drop-in event where you can work on your creative projects alongside a Prototype Thinking facilitator. You'll also have the chance to test your ideas and get immediate feedback from others in the room.
Bring any idea or project to work on. This is a self-guided event where you will be working independently on your idea. Prototyping supplies will be provided.
Need a place to work after the event? You're welcome to stay at WeWork for the rest of the day!
Prototype Thinking (prototypethinking.io) is a method born at GoogleX for rapid experimentation and iteration. It has been used in environments ranging from startup hubs to developing world markets and corporate innovation.
Come to meet people from the local software development industry. We'll share tips and stories and find out who's doing what in Vancouver and the Lower Mainland. Make those network contacts that are so essential in our careers. Regular meetings open with a short technical presentation to kick off our discussions. Then, following Q&A and possibly a door prize draw, we have our round-the-room introductions and open networking. For the introductions we invite all participants to introduce themselves and to let us know what they'd like to talk with others about. This is when connections are made so think about what you would like to say beforehand, especially if speaking in front of a group seems difficult. Social meetings skip the presentation and round-the-room introductions and jump right in to open networking, possibly with a door prize draw. We often invite special guests such as recruiters and speakers so that you have a chance to meet them face-to-face. Of course our "network" is about more than just our meetings. Beyond our members' personal networks we have an opt-in mailing list plus our groups on LinkedIn, Facebook, and Yahoo!
