South Austin C/C++ Monthly "Coffee-and-Career-Talk": Entrepreneurship

The Austin C/C++ Meetup Group
Fri, 6 Apr 2012, 00:00 - 02:00 (Add to calendar) GMT
(Exact location not available) , Austin, US

Every month or two, the C/C++ group gets contacted by people with business ideas who aren't programmers...but require technology talent to actualize their vision.  So for this month's Coffee-and-Career talk, we'll focus on the jump from traditional employment to being a co-founder (or other major role) at a startup.  If you've thought about building your own company or hooking up with people who are taking a crack at that, this discussion will hopefully be for you.

I've invited Marty Dytrych to speak with us.  He is currently looking for a technical co-founder for his media company, but has a background in billboard advertising:

Last month we got good insight into how recruiters see C/C++ experience and how that sells around town.  For those of you who didn't catch Mark Cunningham's follow-up from our discussion, he wrote about it here:

But this time we'll discuss Marty's experiences around & about in the Austin startup community, and how C/C++ experience is viewed (to the extent it's understood at all? :P) by that crowd.

This meetup leans a little more toward career networking than the North one.  But it also does double-duty as our South Austin programmer-talk gathering, so you certainly don't have to be unemployed or underemployed to attend!  We can talk about code, or just ramble about technology in general...

Last time I did this on a Tuesday, but we'll try a Thursday for this one.  If you can't make the day but would have liked to come on a Tuesday or Wednesday, then write some feedback along with your "No" RSVP.

NOTE: The venue has food--as well as wine and beer--in case anyone was worried.
