Meetup: DesignOps NYC Design Systems in the Enterprise

 
 
 

Details

As design leaders and practitioners work on scaling design in their organizations, design systems play an integral part. Whether you have established a DesignOps program in your company, a design system program helps designers, product managers and developers leverage a common language, assets, tools and processes. This panel will concentrate on sharing challenges and lessons learned implementing design systems at the enterprise level. Borrowing a line from Scott Belsky newest book, the most important aspect of a venture, in this case, the design system is neither the beginning nor the launch, it is the “Messy Middle” where a lot of the important things happen. The audience will get the chance to learn from different perspectives and industries, the approaches to navigate and resolve hurdles encountered in complex environments to create successful design systems.

World Retrospective Day - NYC

 
 
 

Details

Our February session will convene on Wednesday, February 27 (not the typical "third Thursday"), to align with other World Retrospective Day (WRD) sites. World Retrospective Day ( http://worldretroday.com/ ) is a 24-hour series of events in agile communities around the world, as well as on-line.

NYC Scrum User Group is proud to be the host of the local WRD event in NYC. Thank you to our facilitators:

Emily Clark ( https://www.linkedin.com/in/emily-clark-47427012/ )
Ralph Jimenez ( https://www.linkedin.com/in/ralphjimenezjr )

Not all Retrospective formats are created equal – some are good at breaking the ice for newer teams while others are better for uncovering hidden problems that could be really bogging the team down. In any case, this Meetup session will focus on sharing techniques/best practices that’ll inspire participants to be thoughtful in selecting a proper Retrospective format for their team’s situation.

Join us for this special event putting a spotlight on one of the most important agile practices – the Retrospective!

          The Great US Security Debate

           

          Offense vs. Defense

          by Contino

           
           

          DESCRIPTION

          With cyber security crimes on the rise, do security engineers have any hope in blocking these attacks? Join us at The Great US Security Debate on Wednesday, June 6th to watch two teams of security experts (divided into Hackers vs. Security) battle against each other.

           

          Here's how it goes down: each team will be given a real-world security scenario. Our team of hackers will present how they can penetrate a network, highlighting all vulnerabilities, and the security team will need to show how they can defend themselves. At the end of each round our audience will decide if the hackers were able to get through, or if the security team was able to successfully defend.

           

          So, if you want to see how your security network could hold up against a team of expert hackers, join us on June 6th for an epic debate!

           

          Need more reasons to attend?

          • Witness technical titans fight it out in a debate-style event
          • Learn how experts would exploit - and defend! - vulnerabilities
          • Chance to ask your own questions to our hackers and InfoSec experts
          • Network with like-minded engineers

              Details

              Customer journey mapping is visual storytelling of the process that a customer goes through to accomplish objectives and goals. Their value is in creating a shared understanding among stakeholders, and they are useful for addressing customer needs and pain points. But what exactly are journey maps, how do you create them and what is the best way to use them?

              Let's get together to discuss how one can create journey maps that generate real value for their customers!

               

              Who should attend:

              - Product designers that want to understand the context of their customers.

              - Product designers that want to get a clear picture of where users come from and what they are trying to achieve within a certain product or service.

              - Content writers that want to understand what questions users have and how they feel as they use a product or service.

              - Product managers that want to understand the overall customer experience within a product or service, so they can identify opportunities to make the experience even better.

                Panel Discussion: How to address the Gender Pay Gap?

                 
                 

                Tonight, our Essteem panel will talk through a few measures companies - and their managers - can take to close the gender pay gap.

                 

                Topics will include:


                - Different kinds of Gender gaps, Stats and the Maternity leave. With Hugh Seureau, Co-founder at Essteem


                - How to monitor the gap? with Marie-Eve Piche, CFO at Pymetrics


                - 10 things managers and others could do to address the issue (panel)


                Launch of Essteems' first Referral contest:

                Refer talents you know to jobs and create "help chains": donate as much as you earn to Girls who Code, Women who Code, Girls develop it or UN Women. Come and be among our first testers of the concept. Become an Essteem Champion if you are among our top referrers, get videos about you, and more perks.

                Fellow males! This meetup is not only for women. Men are usually 5-10% of meetups about inclusion, and it would help to see more of us there.

                  Blockchains and ICOs: Scaling Your Startup Series

                  DESCRIPTION

                  StartOut New York is delighted to present “Blockchains and ICOs”, part of our Scaling Your Startup Series

                  Two new paradigms have entered into the world of emerging startups, the first is Blockchain, a decentralized approach to building systems. The second is the Initial Coin Offering (ICO), a new way to fund startups operating on the Blockchain. This panel will discuss how to think about leveraging blockchain in your platform as well as how to leverage an ICO to fund your startup.

                  ICOs and Blockchain are not for every startup so its just as important to understand when it will help you scale and when it will not. The panel consists of people who are implementing Blockchain and have done ICOs or are preparing to do ICOs. This is a unique opportunity to understand how your startup can benefit.

                    Creating Team Bedrock to Make Meaningful Work

                    We all want to spend our time at work doing something meaningful. But how do we create a framework in which we can do meaningful work on every project, and keep doing it even as the project evolves? How do we get teams made up of people from various disciplines and backgrounds on board?

                    These questions and more will be answered by Dan Szuc and Jo Wong, co-founders and principles of Apogee, a Hong-Kong-based design consultancy. They'll share their insights into creating bedrock, their term for the foundation upon which meaningful work can be built.

                      DESCRIPTION

                      Scaling agile and business agility is on everyone's lips. But despite or perhaps because of the widespread successful use of agile ways of working, the most central element of corporate agility is often ignored or completely underestimated: Human Resources (HR). Let us explore the new world of work and the role of HR in and for agile enterprises. We will discuss the importance of a contemporary HR approach and look into the challenges associated with the necessary transformation. We will talk about establishing agile ways of working in the HR organization (Agile4HR), but also about translating agile values and principles into our HR solutions (HR4Agile).
