Providence Geeks

September Geek Dinner featuring Crowdsurf!

Welcome back, everyone! Hope you had an awesome August. Providence Geeks goes back to school next week with an excellent September presenter.

textlogo11-8What percent of live events sell out? 50%? 20%? Nope… try 2%.

Founded in 2013 by two recent Brown grads, Providence-based Crowdsurf aims to remedy this situation using a combination of geographic and social audience info. Armed with these insights, Crowdsurf’s customers — event venues and promoters — have a much better sense of which acts to book, and how to most effectively promote them.

ticketAs the first stage of their rollout this summer, Crowdsurf launched Big Ticket, a mobile app that offers users the chance to reap major discounts on show tickets. The app — currently being piloted in RI, MA, CT and OR — has already enabled Crowdsurf to build one of the largest databases of audience info in the Northeast.

On Wednesday, Co-founders CEO Alex Oberg and CTO Evan Altman will tell the Crowdsurf story, demo their impressive platform, and give a sneak peek at where they’re headed next.

Who Pressed That Button? Using Change Management and Postmortems to improve IT

How do you implement configuration changes in your environment? From changing port VLANs, installing a replacement switch, or changing group policy, success depends on proper planning. By implementing change management, you'll learn how to minimize risk while improving department communication and deliver more reliable service to your company.

Adam Codega, IT Specialist at Swipely, will walk us through how he's used this seemingly bureaucratic tool in a fast paced startup environment to improve IT service to his co-workers.

Change management can help you plan to avoid disruptions, but when things do go wrong, how do you react? Postmortem documentation can help you dissect and learn from outages while implementing the proper corrections to keep it from happening again. Adam and fellow LOPSA member Jen will show real world postmortems and show you what they learned and how they've used blameless postmortems to increase reliability.

We'll have social time before the talk, so don't worry if you can't arrive at 6 PM. Complimentary pizza, drinks, and beer provided by our venue host, Swipely.
