WIMP Events

Wimp meets every last Wednesday of the month for a topical meetup, and once a month around the 10th for a lunch meetup.

Upcoming Events

  • WIMPy Happy Hour

    Wednesday, June 7th, 2017 | 4:45 PM 6:00 AM

    We had so much fun, let's do it again!

    Seriously old school Italian (before it got all fussy & stuff) food, great prices, extended happy hour from 3 - 7:30 with drink pours that would impress a sailor. What is not to like? Come early, stay late, talk shop.

  • Beginner's Guide to GitHub + Potluck

    Monday, May 22nd, 2017 | 7:00 PM 12:00 AM

    If you aspire to be a better web developer or coder, you should probably be on GitHub. It provides access control and collaboration features such as bug tracking, feature requests, task management, and wikis for your projects, plus hosting at zero cost.

    But maybe you already know that GitHub is awesome, but are intimidated to try it out? Never fear, Quinn Supplee will be here to tell you how to get started and why it matters. 

    Open up a new world of development possibilities for all of your projects and clients in this informative presentation. This presentation will NOT be recorded so please plan to attend if you want to learn more about GitHub.

    PLEASE NOTE NEW LOCATION and IMPORTANT INFORMATION!

    WIMP meetings start at 6:30, so please be here promptly to avoid interrupting the presentation. Parking is available in campus parking lots and there is a limited amount of parking in the adjacent neighborhood in the evenings. Please note parking rules if you go that route.

    Please bring what you would like to snack on and share. We will supply pizza and water. No alcohol allowed on SRJC campus. Thanks.

    Please RSVP if you plan on coming. Thanks and we are looking forward to seeing you!

    P.S. We'll have some free Peachpit Dreamweaver CC, CS6 and Javascript books for folks who come early. :)

  • Tales From The Client Whisperer

    Monday, April 24th, 2017 | 6:30 PM 4:00 AM

    How to use storytelling, NLP, problem solving and open communication to get client approvals every time.

    Do you sweat bullets every time you have to meet with a client for a presentation or proposal meeting? There is no need. Let Ann Stringer give you tools to CRUSH (in a good way) your next client meeting.

    No matter how talented your design, coding or technical skills are, in the end you only prove your value to your clients or employers by selling your work. Come away from this Meetup with the strategies and tactics you need to do that more effectively.

    PLEASE NOTE NEW LOCATION!

    WIMP meetings start at 6:30 and presentations start a little after at 7:00, so don't rush. Parking is available in campus parking lots and there is a limited amount of parking in the adjacent neighborhood in the evenings. Please note parking rules if you go that route.

    Please bring what you would like to snack on and share. We will supply pizza and water. No alcohol allowed on SRJC campus. Thanks.

  • Task List Holy War!

    Monday, March 27th, 2017 | 6:30 PM 4:00 AM

    In some circles the choice of browser, programmers' editor, or operating systems are topics that incite arguments with no peaceful resolution.

    When it comes to the tools used to organize teams and tasks, the passions can also run pretty high.

    That's why you're likely to be entertained AND informed when we assemble our community to talk about why each member likes the tools they choose for this purpose.

    Whether you prefer Basecamp, Remember the Milk. Slack, Outlook, or Asana, you'll almost certainly see something new for yourself as our panel talks about their success stories and pet peeves.

    Vincent Lowe has had another event come up, so we will have a round-robin discussion. Please bring your task management favorites and why you love 'em. You will leave the evening with some new ideas on how to get things done.

    PLEASE NOTE NEW LOCATION!

    WIMP meetings start at 6:30 and presentations start a little after at 7:00, so don't rush. Parking is available in campus parking lots and there is a limited amount of parking in the adjacent neighborhood in the evenings. Please note parking rules if you go that route.
