Collective Agency Third Saturdays 9am to 5pm
Collective Agency

Collective Agency staff are trying an experiment: additional to everything else we have, we’ll be staffed on the Third Saturday of the month, 9am-5pm (this coming Saturday January 18th, and next month February 15th).

The reason why is for Collective Agency to be open for tours (and work here for a day) for people who wouldn’t be available during the week and would like to try membership.

FutureTalk with Selena Deckelmann
New Relic

What Beginners Teach Us

Check out our pre-event Q&A with Selena on the New Relic blog.

Open source as an idea has won. Linux dominates developer servers, open source tools are ubiquitous and being an open source developer rocks. And yet, we talk frequently about how to find new contributors, how to increase the number of people who participate and share code with us, how to improve the skills of the junior developers and hire them as fast as we can.

Selena has spent a considerable amount of time teaching absolute beginners how to program in Python, how to use the command-line and how to use revision control. These beginners succeed and fail in open source in both familiar and surprising ways. In this talk, she will share lessons from their experiences to help us create a more inclusive and welcoming future for open source software. Further, she will provide insights into the code review process, and how learning how to give code review (not just receive code review) is critical to becoming an expert developer.

This is the 7th event in a series of free monthly FutureTalks from disruptive Developers, innovative Technologists and world-changing Creatives. Networking begins at 5:30, with free food and drinks. The presentation will begin right at 6p.

Please RSVP via Eventbrite HERE

Selena is a major contributor to PostgreSQL and a data architect at Mozilla. She's been involved with free and open source software since 1995 and began running conferences for PostgreSQL in 2007. She founded Open Source Bridge, Postgres Open and speaks internationally about open source, databases and community. She is an advisor to the Ada Initiative, an organization dedicated to increasing the participation of women in open source and technology communities.

You can find her on Twitter @selenamarie and on her blog at chesnok.com

FutureTalk Summer Series with Andrew Wilson + Special Happy Hour
New Relic

Autonomous Driving and Open Source

As one of the largest consumer purchases and most common forms of transportation in the developed world, cars and their rapidly advancing in-vehicle automation systems pose a not-too-distant future scenario where regulation, technology, economics and individual rights will intersect in new and unforeseen ways. Come join an interactive discussion on the topic.

We’re also thrilled that Matt Jones of Jaguar Land Rover* has agreed to participate in what we hope will be a highly interactive discussion. Matt is the head of Future Infotainment at JLR and an outspoken leader in driving industry standards to accelerate things like autonomous driving.

Doors will open at 5:30p. The special beer (from Burnside Brewing!) + whiskey networking happy hour sponsored by the Intel Open Source Technology Center will kick off at 6p, and includes free beer, and a whiskey tasting. The food and drinks are provided by Bellagios and New Relic. The presentation will begin right at 6:30p.

Please RSVP via Eventbrite HERE

Back when open source was far from mainstream, Andy navigated the early waters of GPL to make it tenable to his employer, an intellectual-property-rich semiconductor company. Today, Andy is the chief open source compliance officer for Intel. When he’s not reviewing the license manifests of soon-to-be-released code as part of his day job, Andy likes to ponder bigger ideas, one of which is Autonomous Driving and the role open source is playing in that future.

Free Days: working and conversations 10am-4pm Monday to Friday
through Collective Agency

RSVP at: https://www.facebook.com/collectiveagency/ or http://www.meetup.com/Collective-Agency-community-workplace/ or Twitter @CollectiveAgenC

First Fridays Free Days were a success so we're expanding to every weekday. Come work and have conversations at Collective Agency during our Free Days (Monday through Friday 10am-4pm each day).

Members, come as usual, and you can bring guests, it'll be the same for you as it has been but with more people here.

All new members and free people are making history or generally being great; take the quiz to see if you qualify. http://collectiveagency.co/quiz/ (we lowered the passing score from 20 to 17)

If you qualify, then there are 3 requirements:

1) RSVP commenting below with: your name, what days and times you expect to be here, what you’ll be working on (you can include a link to a website or social media), and what you’re looking for. This will be posted on our website, RSVP pages, and here on the wall.

2) While you’re here in the big loft room, each day you’ll find ways to talk with at least 2 people here for at least 30 minutes total.

3) Every day you're here free after the first day you're here, we ask for you to do 5-30 minutes of helping out Collective Agency in addition to being here and having conversations here. The simplest way is writing about us online. A Requests/Needs List is shared here.

The goal is potluck/stone-soup community gift-economy sharing for people here free, so we all contribute and grow (as a saying goes, "not free as in beer, but free as in kittens").

Schedule: • 10am – Open for free • 12pm – Optional lunch • 4pm – End of free day

Wednesdays 2-2:45pm are civics; you can participate in a group Q&A about here, and plan what you want to happen here. As we grow, we will keep room for free access here and expand to additional locations/satellite offices.

People here for free will have access to the big loft room, the kitchen, and restrooms, but not: conference rooms, locker storage, computer monitors. You can come in groups of up to 14 people but everybody has to qualify and do the actions described above. There are no age restrictions.

The community guidelines are the core of the terms of service, linked from the quiz.
