Docker for Developers
Limited Capacity seats available

Using Docker enables fast, repeatable testing and deployment of software, lowering complexity and risk so entrepreneurs can focus on value.  In this talk, we review how Developers use Docker, with discussion about interacting with the entire startup team.

You should be familiar with code and Unix/Linux command line basics. Most examples will be in Python. We’ll take a hands on approach to see how Docker works for Developers. As your knowledge and skills improve, the Docker containers you develop can push to the Cloud with little modification, assisting scale out for your new software system, while helping you to be a more versatile developer.

Bring your laptop and be ready to try something new!

Mac users install Docker here.
Linux users install Docker here.

Windows users install Docker here

Have your SSH keys ready! Learn about SSH keys from Github.

Archethought
 will sponsor Linux logins during the session if you do not have your laptop configured for Docker.

Re-imagining Healthcare Luncheon
Limited Capacity filling up

The demand for value in health care (higher quality at a lower cost) is a powerful force in creating change and disruptive innovation in how healthcare is delivered.  The healthcare sector is respnding to this demand and we are already starting to experience changes in the way care is delivered via the incorporation of digital and mobile health technologies into the care experience, and the continued evolution of biotechnology products.  These technologies along with fundamental changes in business models, are all centered on making healthcare more accessible and affordable. The long term belief and hope of these innovators and change agents is that in aggregate, these advances will lead to permanent changes in payment modes and the provision of care, and ultimately improve the quality of health status for all. 

 

This panel will discuss the role of innovation and entrepreneus in the health care space, how health systems are using innovation in technology to improve the value of the healthcare they deliver and examples of other disruptive innovations that will change lives in health care.   



Lunch will be provided, compliments of UCHealth.

Hack the Dot Hackathon
Limited Capacity seats available

A Hack the Dot is a two-hour hackathon where coding school students, junior developers, experienced developers, non developers, marketers, designers and curious web people come together to build ideas around a single domain name.

Our events are meant to be a quick and fun way to build a humorous (and functional) product quickly while meeting people in your tech/startup community.

There will be pizza. ROSALEE'S PIZZA. And beer.

What to Bring / How to Prepare:

• Bring your laptop and charger.

Not required but suggested you coder types:

• Install the Atom text editor. Go here: https://atom.io/

• Setup a github.com account

How does it work?

Step 1: Attendees are broken up into random teams.

Step 2: The teams are provided with the same undisclosed domain name by Name.com, arbitrary and often hilarious.

Step 3: Teams have just two hours to come up with a functioning site inspired by that domain. The team builds the most creative and fun idea for the domain wins.

Participants will be judged on four criteria: (1) functionality, (2) design, (3) humor, and (4) creative domain name interpretation.

What do you get at the event?

FOOD!

SWAG!

FRIENDS!

How much does it cost?

It’s FREE!

Questions? Send them to HacktheDot at name.com.
