February Tech Meetup
Last night’s meetup featured four different and unique companies that all shared great ideas to help better our community. Each company was given the chance to demo their ideas, followed by a Q&A session with the audience.
Serve 2020 was the first one up to discuss their unique way of changing the way restaurants conduct their server training. Their goal is to help restaurants increase their overall profits, while at the same time providing a way to better train servers in a shorter time. This will ultimately save the restaurants money and better prepare their servers. They help you teach your servers everything from Wine 101 to Menu Knowledge.
4-H Exploding Robots
Exploding Bacon has been on the scene for 11 years. 4-H focuses on teaching students skills that are essential to any career. Students in the program learn computer programming, engineering, hands-on machinery skills, strategic thinking, and public speaking among other things. Their goal is to promote and inspire the youth members to continue pursuing a higher education. They also brought in one of their robots, W-Ham-O, for the audience to take a look at what it is they can accomplish in just six weeks.
Learn Jelly is a platform aimed at helping elementary kids exceed learning and development objectives in a storytelling format. This process allows kids to use a process that helps transform stories into movies and virtual worlds. The website has over a hundred stories based on math, science and social studies concepts. Since each individual learns at their own pace, Learn Jelly allows you to select the lessons and skills that work best for them.
The last demo of the evening was from SchoolFlow. An application that’s designed for you to spend less time organizing and more time on the important things. They’ve put together a product that will automatically organize your assignments as soon as you log in. You can use this to submit assignments, check your progress and your grades. They’ve created a simplified way to track your progress all semester long and a way to stay up-to-date with any upcoming assignments at no cost to you.
Thank you to all that came out. For those of you who couldn’t make it, come on out and join us for our next meetup on March 17th. RSVP by clicking the link Orlando Tech Meetup and let us know you’ll be there.
