SiliconHaltonDayHaltonHive2016

Here's your opportunity to experience and experiment with co-working. Join fellow members at our monthly Silicon Halton Day at the coworking space Halton HiVE, Burlington. 

Our ideas are products of our environment. They are influenced by the conversations around us.

Random opportunities and discoveries that arise from interactions with others – play a large role in coworking
- from Working in the UnOffice from Night Owls Press

If you’ve experienced the favourable collisions, the random opportunities, that regularly occur during the short span of a Silicon Halton meetup, imagine the possibilities during a full day? Collisions are the probable interactions with other local tech businesses or professionals or ancillary tech services. These collisions routinely produce discoveries, economic and/or professional growth.

If you work in home office or small office, can you afford not to come?

Interviewing new candidates can be challenging, but especially so when it comes to a software development position.  Software development as a profession requires a broad range of technical skills, and each company hiring will have different needs based on their technology stack, business domain, methodologies, and processes.  With a wide range of skill sets and experiences, finding the right candidate can be challenging. 

In addition, interviewing for a Software Development job can be very stressful for candidates these days.  Companies are increasingly using more involved techniques in their interviews, including white board problems, coding tests, trivia-style quizzes, and more.  This can take a lot more time for a candidate than a standard job interview with no guarantee of success, and the increased scrutiny can be overwhelming for more introverted candidates.  We'll spend some time discussing the perspective of the interviewee, and tips to succeed at the interview stage.

The format for the meetup will be a brainstorming and information gathering workshop.  The goal will be to explore the experiences of our members in attendance, collect interesting points, and organize the highlights that emerge from the discussion as a set of recommendations for interviewers and interviewees to use in future interviews. 

This meetup should be a nice complement to the upcoming Silicon Halton meetup "Writing Job Descriptions That Attract The People You Want" also happening in August.
