Technology events for May 2020

Most of the groups that are continuing to hold events have settled into a rhythm of online gathering, having accepted the state of things and worked out the technology, but the overall offerings remain anemic relative to pre-pandemic levels. With access to meetings and webinars globally, however, the opportunities for live learning and virtual gathering are more plentiful than ever.

Last month, I reported that Asheville Word Camp would not be holding an in-person event this summer. This month, I can share that SouthEast LinuxFest (SELF) has been canceled for 2020 and Drupal Camp Asheville will be held as an online event in July.

Finally, again, note that for the groups utilizing Meetup.com's new online event feature, you only get the link to join if you are a member of the group and RSVP "yes" to attending the event.

Stay safe. Stay home. Stay engaged.

Analytics in Asheville

Thursday, May 21 - 5:30 to 7:30 PM

Monthly Meeting

This meeting will be online. We'll try out a Data Rants format where anyone can complain/explain their data problems. If you have a specific topic, you can message me/comment on Meetup so I have it listed or just bring it to the meeting. You don't have to talk if you don't want. It will be an open format but with possible time limits to make sure everyone that wants to talk gets a turn.

Location: online (RSVP for link)

Tech Talent South

Tuesday, May 26 - 7:30 to 8:30 PM

Empathy: The Most Valuable UX Tool

Ever get caught in an endless loop of iteration? Ever deliver exactly what the scope described, only to ignite unexpected drama? Reduce the risk by incorporating empathy-building research into your workflows. This webinar will cover methodologies to investigate your stakeholders' daily pain points and broad industry norms. We’ll touch on product configuration tools borrowed from Lean Launchpad, marketing, and user-centered design. Empathy has major business value. Not only will your deliverable solve the right problem and align with expectations, but you’ll also have less frustration along the way.
