Featuring +Dan Shapiro
, CEO of Robot Turtles, O'Reilly author, co-founder of Glowforge, former Googler, and successful Seattle startup creator! Find him at @danshapiro on Twitter.
We all have side projects in tech. We use them to improve our skills, build a network, find inspiration, and occasionally, to transition from one job to another. Dan Shapiro has raised side projects to high art; he's created the most-backed board game in Kickstarter history, and has a reputation for succeeding in startup after startup. He'll be joining us to talk about his upcoming projects, how to turn your side project into a successful business, and fun stuff about Robot Turtles!
Tarah Wheeler Van Vlack is CEO of Fizzmint, Seattle's premier HR application startup & co-founder of Hack The People, the world's largest tech mentorship initiative. These 15-minute talks with 15-minutes of live Q&A are broadcast each Wednesday at 3:30PM Pacific via Google Hangouts On Air. Everyone is welcome!
