  • How I got the CTO to pay for Open APIs
    How I got the CTO to pay for Open APIs
    Melissa Jurkoic, Senior Solutions Architect for Amadeus Hospitality Recorded: May 1 2019 48 mins
    Companies have been integrating their systems internally and externally via APIs for many years. APIs are not new, but the idea of them being openly accessible and available to be discovered by someone without your permission is indeed new for companies. Her company had dealt with integrating with partners for over 20 years, but this was necessary due to customer demand, and not seen as an opportunity to increase our reach or revenue. In order to convince C-level executives that there is an opportunity worth investing in, it is sometimes necessary to charge forward and create the outcome you need them to see.

    Using the experiences through this journey from integration to opportunity, this talk will explain how we achieved justification for an entire development team to be dedicated to delivering our future API strategy.

    Tips you’ll learn:
    •Not everyone will share your vision, but that doesn’t mean it’s not worth pursuing.
    •You can gain executive buy-in by creating the outcome you want them to see.
    •There is power in your personal network that will enable you to achieve your greatest goals.
  • Communication is Just as Important as Code
    Communication is Just as Important as Code
    Andrea Goulet, CEO of Corgibytes Recorded: Apr 17 2019 57 mins
    Bobbie sits down with Andrea Goulet to learn more about what good communication has to do with building software. Come to find out, it has a lot more to do with than you might think. The idea of a lone developer coding in her basement without social interaction is a thing of the past. These days, technical solutions are often developed by cross-functional teams whose participants have a range of technical experience.

    Now, more than ever, good communication skills are essential to shipping great software. There is a great need for business-minded professionals to be able to acquire more technical skills and for engineers to be able to articulate their ideas to people who may not code. While it often feels like these two worlds speak completely different languages, when an effort is made to break down stereotypes and silos, magic can happen.

    After this webinar, you’ll understand how to:
    •Expand your skillset to become a better collaborator
    •Use empathy to help you understand your co-workers
    •Explain the causal link between good communication and quality code
    •Implement specific practices to get business folks and engineers working together

    The New Tax Law and How it Affects You
    Rashida Motiwalla Recorded: Mar 13 2019 61 mins
    Wait! Before you fill out your tax returns, there are some things you need to know. The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA) passed in December 2017 is considered the most sweeping tax legislation since the Tax Reform Act of 1986. Major changes will affect individual and business tax filings this year – right now. Overall, the TCJA has reduced income tax rates for most individual tax brackets and corporations. Although the TCJA offers significant tax benefits it also eliminates or limits many tax breaks, and much of the tax relief is only temporary.

    Rashida will explain the changes that have been implemented for 2018 that will affect both business and individual tax filings.

    You will learn about:
    -Qualified Business Deduction for pass-through entities and sole proprietors and the new corporate tax rate
    -Changes in interest and entertainment expenses deductions
    -Changes in carrying forward business losses
    -Changes in business depreciation limits for auto and section 179 limitations
    -Changes to itemized deductions, child tax credit, the standard deduction, alimony, and kiddie tax rates
