From Junior Dev to Mid-Dev :: The importance of Mentorship
Nashville Software School has been serving our tech community since June of 2012, having graduated nearly 300 individuals who are now forging a new career as software developers. With their community based non-profit mission, the Nashville Software School continues to expand and bring new programs to those who are interested in learning more in the field of software development. Being the first junior developer on a software development team can be incredibly daunting, not only for the junior developer, but also the team hiring this person.
What it's like to be the first junior developer? What to expect? The importance of finding mentorship internally or externally to your company and how to establish a relationship where you truly grow your skills. Being a leader and making the decision to bring on a junior developer comes with preparation and commitment to the process.
What goes into making the decision to hire first junior developer? What does this look like for them in terms of managing the team, delegating work, and truly incorporating juniors into the team Their commitment to mentorship and how they have supported the growth of juniors on their team and in the community Our expert panelists are eager to share their stories and experiences, as well as facilitate a highly interactive conversation. So, bring your questions!

ThursdaySep 29 2016Women Get IT6–8pm
Clear your calendar, because this isn't your average networking event! WomenGetIT is a mentorship program that connects future IT talent, students, women interested in technology, and those re-entering the workforce with local IT professionals. Our goal is to create a positive and supportive environment that enables us to help each other in the pursuit of creating a more diversified workforce.
Men, you are invited too! We started this as a program for women and quickly realized that men need mentors too. Besides, it seemed kind of silly to talk about improving the workplace with 70-80% of the workforce unrepresented.
Come one, come all, bring a guest, and let's "get IT!"

Nashville Music Programmers
There are two demonstrations lined up for this month's meeting. We are shifting the night to Thursday for this month, instead of our regular Monday night meetings.
William Hickok will be presenting a WebAudio game similar to Guitar Hero. He will be discussing many of the things that went into the design of the game. The title of his talk is, "Dynamic Sound Manipulation."
Sam Lax will be presenting his system for distributing royalties to the appropriate owners of an audio work. It'll be a great talk about how computer programming can be used to advance the business side of the music industry.
It should make for an interesting, entertaining, and educational night. I hope to see you there!
There is also a livestream of the event available at: http://www.facebook.com/hackaudio/

TuesdayOct 4 2016Simple Microservice Architecture with Seth Buntin
With a little bit of thought and the correct tooling I want to show how a microservice architecture can take shape. I will go over a simple JWT authentication example built in Clojure, but you can use all of the technology in Java. We will look at the concepts of 12 factor applications (https://12factor.net/) and how we can benefit from this type of methodology and in particular how we can make some decisions in the beginning that will make it easier on our way to a production system.
WednesdayOct 5 2016Development By Design (Patterns)
Our development practices are often aided by time tested tools and libraries which provide ready-made components we can plug in to our applications. But development requires more than just plugging together existing components. At some point, we have to roll up our sleeves and start writing new code. Even then, there are long established approaches that can help us think through the best way to build out our business logic. These approaches, known as design patterns, come in many shapes and sizes. In this talk, we will look at several design patterns and consider how they can help us to be better developers who produce clean, maintainable, testable code in less time.
