Bad Database Design and Good Managers at March ODevs
This month’s meetup features talks focused on web development.
PLEASE NOTE THE VENUE: This month, we are meeting at Rollins College in the Kathleen W. Rollins Hall, which is a large building located on Mills Lawn at the center of campus. We will be meeting in the Galloway Room. Directions and parking info are below.
WHAT YOU’LL LEARN:
Database Design: Easy ways to recognize when it’s bad.
– Joe Gohlke
Joe has thirty-five years of programming experience. Twenty years as a Database Administrator using Oracle and Postgres supporting large S/W development programs. He knows the ins and outs of Data Modeling and while it can be tricky to tell if it is being done well, there are obvious indicators when it is being done badly. This talk will help you recognize those red flags for yourself.
What to Look(out) for with Your First Manager
– Stephen Rivas Jr.
It’s your first day on the new job! Everyone is great, and you’re excited to work on some amazing things and build great software in your new role. You open up your calendar and you see it scheduled, right there, a recurring 1:1 with your new manager! But wait, what are you supposed to talk about?
What makes a great manager anyway, and what kind of impact on your career could one have? No one ever told me what to expect, what to look out for, or what to ask for from my management. After fumbling through it for 10+ years, and trading notes with others in the tech field, I think I can shed some light how to leverage this critical relationship as you grow your own skills & career.

Stephen has worked as a Software Engineer at several tech startups in Tampa, San Francisco, and Cupertino. Most notably, perhaps, as an Engineering Manager for the Metadata team in the Netflix Studio UI space, which built & maintained many applications that helped collect, internationalize, & manage digital assets for the global Netflix streaming catalog. He’s currently an Engineering Manager at Test Double, a remote-first engineering consultancy that hopes to help change the way the world delivers software.
We’ll be serving pizzas this month. All the noms!
