Talk Abstracts:

-The task seemed simple enough... Little did Dave L know that he'd accidentally delete a bunch of data that he'd spend the next 2 weeks recovering. Come listen to a new hire's personal journey through an incident, and learn about Yelp's approach to learning from our mistakes.

-Davis W surprised himself coming out of school by becoming a Product Manager instead of (as long planned) a Software Engineer. Come by and hear why he took this plunge into something totally new. He'll give you a picture of what a PM does, illustrated with some of his own stories. Plan to walk away knowing if you want to be a PM as well.

We're providing dinner! Remember, your CS or engineering resume if you would like to pass your information onto a recruiter.
