A Home for Windsor's Tech Community

Rebecca Welbourn

I have spent the past six years exploring different industries focusing on project management, business development, communications and membership management. Most recently, I worked as Executive Director for Hackforge, a not-for-profit technology organization based in Windsor, Ontario. During my time there I was responsible for the TechBoost Program, a 12-month project consisting of a series of workshops to provide small business owners with training in information technology tools and products for business. This project involved designing a relevant curriculum of workshop topics based on qualitative research, recruiting expert instructors, coordinating and facilitating over 35 individual events, promoting the program to the community, managing the project budget, collecting data, and documenting and evaluating the progress and final outcomes of the project.

Currently, I’m working as a Transformational Analyst on the HITS eHealth Team at Hamilton Health Sciences.

Border City JavaScript

Following the free-form discussion at our April meetup, we’re having a more structured discussion for May’s meet-up that dives a bit deeper into some topics. Come prepared with a short list of 2-3 topics we talked about that really interested you. It’s even better if you have specific questions you’d like answered.

If you missed the April meetup, you can choose any topics related to web development or JavaScript that pique your interest.

We’ll all write our topics or questions down on sticky notes, and we’ll organize the topics into categories. Then we’ll process through the topics, talking about each as a group. This format, a structured discussion with no predetermined agenda, is called a Lean Coffee, and it’s really fun!
