Chapter Meetings

Next STC-SF chapter meeting: Wednesday 20, May 2015

Eric Hughes presents:
Case study – Information Design: A process for web architectural success

Eric will describe how to approach a huge software project that has failed twice already, is full of political and organizational obstacles, has almost thirty distinct audiences, and tens of thousands of current and not-so-current pieces of content…(and oh, by the way, we don’t know where some of them are…). We’ll discuss the successful business and audience analysis and launch of this site: http://www.uaex.edu/.

About the presenter:

Eric Hughes began his career in technology as a technical trainer at Lockheed Martin in Sunnyvale. He then moved to Charles Schwab to design voice and data networks. In the early 1990’s, he emigrated to Wells Fargo to design the largest internal TCP/IP network in the U.S. As the web matured, he headed up an effort to develop & use intranet applications for bank-wide business and communications. From 1998 through 2014, he managed Simplexity, an Oakland-based web application development firm.

Location

STC-SF chapter meetings are held in Rincon Center complex bounded by Mission, Howard, Spear, and Steuart Streets.

The entrance to the chapter meetings is near Rincon food court entry doors facing the plaza (not the entry doors on Mission Street). Look for the Salesforce.com lobby with two bright blue chairs in the corner.

Parking

Use either the Howard Street Garage (located between Spear and Steuart) or the garage under the Rincon Center (located on Spear between Mission and Howard). The Rincon Center underground parking garage elevator will take you to the ground floor, on the same side of the building as the entrance to the meeting center.

NOTE that the Howard Street Garage’s rates are lower at night than during the day.


Public Transportation

You can take either BART or MUNI and exit at the Embarcadero Station. Turn right and walk down Spear Street, about half-way down the block. Cross the street and enter the plaza about half-way down Spear Street (on the east side of Spear Street). Walk up the steps, and when you see the Dolphin fountain, look left, you’ll see the entrance.

Member price is for STC members. You do not need to be a San Francisco Chapter member to qualify.

To quality for the First Timer price, you cannot be a STC member and this would be your first time at a San Francisco Chapter meeting.
