November 2014 Meeting

PRESENTATION: Fast Growth: A retrospective on 5 years of key technical decisions by Joshua Silver and @1yellowbrick

Mini-talk by Robert Swarthout:  SVG, PNGs, and ImageMagick

NEW LOCATION: We are now meeting at Polygon Atlanta in Atlantic Station. See directions at Easiest: park, then take the Green #5 elevator to the 2nd level. Exit the elevator, bear left, and look for Polygon above Moe’s (photo on directions link above).

Description: During this presentation, Joshua will highlight key technical decisions made during the last 5 years as Patientco grew from an “idea on a napkin” into an early stage startup – and then into the thriving, high-growth technology company it is today.  While focused primarily on PHP decisions, Joshua will also touch on other key elements of the tech stack that have proved instrumental to Patientco’s success. Whether you’re leading a large team in a Fortune 500 company or are just a single freelance developer, there will be plenty of “lessons from the trenches” and actionable takeaways.
