Silicon Valley Agile Leadership Network Meetup

Great Meetup at CSV last night with the Silicon Valley Agile Leadership Network! Our speaker was the “spirited” Pollyanna Pixton, author, Forbes contributer and expert on agile leadership.

UX Field Trip Friday: Tesla

From precision welding performed by giant self-healing robots, to finish work applied through human craftsmanship, the 5.3 million square foot Tesla factory in Freemont, CA offered everything you’d expect from a company that produces a mainstream luxury sedan that can do 0-60 in 2.8 seconds (which is faster than a Lamborghini Aventador). Our non-disclosure agreement […]

Despite our club being only a year old this October our own Kevin Shea took first in Humorous and will go on to District!

UX Field Trip Friday: Computer History Museum

What an amazing evolution we are all a part of! And no better way to understand what’s happening than by time-traveling at the Computer History Museum. We were all impressed with the craftsmanship and ingenuity of the earliest engineers. Their physical work seemed so much more complicated than what we do today with code. But […]
