As technologists, we spend the greater portion of our time with our heads down tapping away at problems. When challenges arise, we keep plugging at it until the issue is resolved. But what happens when the solution doesn’t come easy?
As a segment of the national workforce, we are the most connected. We have a plethora of resources at our fingertips that update us on the latest discoveries and newest techniques in the tech industry. And yet, not all of our questions are answered. Many times we labor at it on our own or resort to questionable sources of information.
In May, Clear Launch created the Ask A Software Architect meetup with the hopes of giving developers, entrepreneurs, and business leaders a place to share experiences, meet technologists, and learn about the problems facing others in the industry. This is a place to get advice from experienced software architects and Subject Matter Experts who can answer those technology related, mission-critical questions that consistently block your progress.
Ask a Software Architect happens twice a month at two locations: Slab BBQ in North Austin and Uncle Billy’s BBQ on Barton Springs in Central Austin. The meetup is hosted by Clear Launch’s CEO, Orion Jensen, and Lead Solution Architect, Barrett Simms, who have decades of experience building software and systems for major corporations and successful startups.
He holds a BBA in Finance from Stephen F. Austin State University as well as a Masters of Science in Technology Commercialization from The University of Texas.
