Bleeding Edge Web Meetup

The Peer-to-Peer Web

Wednesday, July 26, 2017

7:00 PM

  • Capital Factory (Located in the Austin Centre)

    701 Brazos Street, 16th floor, Austin, TX (map)

     

    We love the Web because it’s open, free, and highly connected. But sometimes the Web falls short: big businesses are centralizing control, data is getting tied up on servers, and users are losing their privacy.

    The Beaker browser is rethinking these problems. It solves the dependency on services by enabling any device to publish websites independently, using a peer-to-peer network. Join us to discuss how P2P technology will impact the Web, and to see a demo of the browser in action.

     

    About the Speakers

    Paul (@pfrazee) and Tara (@taravancil) are the founders of Blue Link Labs and the creators of the Beaker Browser and Hashbase. We’re building new Web technologies that promote freedom, creativity, and personal privacy.

     

    News From the Bleeding Edge

    In addition to the main talk, Brian will start us off with the crowd favorite “News from the Bleeding Edge” segment, in which we’ll discuss all the latest and greatest in browsers and web app development.

     

    Can’t Make it in Person?

    Our events are livestreamed — watch here (available once the meetup begins). You can also jump into Slack for virtual Q&A and discussion during the meeting — look for the #live-meetup channel. Please join the group if you haven’t already!

    NOTE: Please RSVP here ONLY if you plan to attend in person as it helps us plan for attendance and food. If you plan to watch online there’s no need to RSVP.

  • “I’ve been working with Technology Navigators for a decade because they save me time and money by providing me with the best candidates in the shortest amount of time. After working with Technology Navigators for ten years, I asked them and sixteen other agencies from Austin and around the country to help us recruit five Java stars. We hired three from Technology Navigators.”

    - Software Development Manager in Austin, TX
  • “Best. Recruiter. Ever. Hands Down.”

    - Sr. Java Developer in Austin, TX
  • “I have really enjoyed working with my Recruiting Consultant at Technology Navigators. He has by far had the most open and easy to work with demeanor out of the numerous recruiters I’ve talked to. His attitude is refreshing in this business! I plan to continue working with Technology Navigators in the future, whether it is to find another gig in Austin or elsewhere.”

    - Software Developer in Austin, TX
  • “I first started working with Technology Navigators several years ago. Back then I did not have many hiring needs. However, Technology Navigators stayed in touch on a regular basis. When I moved to another company with a large number of open positions, I immediately called them. They were able to quickly find outstanding technical applicants to fill our positions. I have continued my relationship with Technology Navigators, and it is a great feeling to know that I can always count on them to provide highly qualified people anytime, and many times with very short notice.”

    - Software Development Manager in Austin, TX
  • “During my job search I worked with four recruiters and you were by far the most professional, friendly, and hard-working of them all. You have a great sense-of-humor that really puts the candidate at ease, and you gave me some great advice on interviewing. I enjoyed our face-to-face meeting; it really showed your interest in making the entire process go as smoothly as possible.”

    - Software Developer in Austin, TX
  • “I’ve hired technical staff through Technology Navigators at several companies over the last 5 years and the team has consistently provided high quality personnel with the specific technical and value backgrounds to fit seamlessly into my organizations. They maintain high levels of communication with staff they have placed, as well as hiring managers long after placements have started. I highly recommend Technology Navigators!”

    - Director of IT, Software in Austin, TX
  • “Technology Navigators is my go-to team when I have a technical position that is particularly hard to fill. Allen Goldsmith and his team work with me to find the exact right candidate and I appreciate their thoroughness in screening, candidate preparation and follow-up.”

    - Vice President Product Engineering, Cloud Computing in Austin, TX
  • “I’ve worked with Technology Navigators for over a decade and they are simply the best. They take the time necessary to understand the requirements of the position being filled and send only qualified, fully vetted candidates. This saves me untold hours wading through resumes. They are the first people I turn to when I need to make a tough hire.”

    - Chief Technology Officer, Software in Austin, TX
  • “Technology Navigators has been a great partner to help us identify and hire great Software Engineers.  Not only do they find great technical talent but they understand our company culture and work hard to find candidates that will enjoy and thrive within our environment. They have always been very responsive to our needs and helped us work through any concerns with the candidates. Looking forward to many more years of hiring with Technology Navigators!”

    - Director of Product Engineering, Software in Austin, TX
  • “Thanks for keeping me updated on the progress of the interview process. That means more to your candidates than you realize and engenders loyalty and credibility. It’s professional, and already you stand head and shoulders above 99% of the recruiters with whom I speak.”

    - Software Developer in Austin, TX
  • “The Technology Navigators team has done an amazing job.  I have worked with many Rock Star firms and they have outperformed every one of them!  We have been blown away by the top notch candidates submitted and the short amount of time it has taken Technology Navigators to find them! Thank you.”

    - Hiring Manager, Data Warehousing in Austin, TX
  • “I appreciated getting to know my recruiter and getting to know more about the interview process. It was the first time I have felt that a recruiter was partnering with me instead of me just being a potential placement.”

    - Lead Software Engineer in Austin, TX
  • “The whole team at Technology Navigators played a big part in getting me my new job. I particularly appreciate my Recruiting Consultant, who was very helpful in every possible way starting from setting up the interview, making sure I was there on time for onsite interviews, following up after interview, getting feedback etc. He worked with me until I got the offer. I will definitely let Technology Navigators know if my friends are looking for job.”

    - Software QA Engineer in Austin, TX
  • “I have worked with several other technical recruiters in my past.  The Recruiting Consultant I worked with at Technology Navigators coached me to land a great job here in Austin, TX.  He gave me detailed advice on how to answer questions professionally during and post interview process.  I am very pleased with Technology Navigators’ professionalism and would highly recommend any technical job seekers to use them.”
