ngPittsburgh: Introduction to Bazel

Developers rarely consider build performance an issue of concern until their builds have already passed the threshold of what they consider to be optimal build times and at that point its often a large undertaking to remedy. With today's complex front end application builds consisting of running unit tests, typescript and sass compilation, bundling modules and many other steps, what is the solution for attaining fast yet consistent builds? With Angular 8 comes the bazel opt-in preview which allows for incremental builds, only rebuilding and testing the code in our application that has changed since the previous commit. In this meetup we will look into how to set up a project using bazel and the advantages that come with it.

Sponsored by: JLL, CASTUS, and Microsoft

Pittsburgh has grown into a global player in the advancement of technology in many aspects.

The Summit’s theme revolves around diverse perspectives from our region’s leaders on the most pressing issues regarding the use of technology, interaction with consumers' data, and the state of the tech industry in our region.

PFM: The Role Of Regulatory Sandboxes In Fintech Innovation

"Toddlers play in sandboxes. Adults play by the rules."

That 2018 quote from The New York State Department of Financial Services set an interesting tone for Fintech innovation in the US and opposed the Department of Treasury’s endorsement of regulatory sandboxes for financial technology companies.

Since the launch of the UK’s regulatory sandbox in May 2016, regulators across the globe have adopted similar frameworks. Arizona was the first state in the US to create a Fintech sandbox in 2018. Utah just recently created their own in 2019.

Regulatory sandboxes are not only of interest to startup firms. They also have potential benefits for more established market players that are looking to launch innovative new products that do not fit easily within the mold of existing financial services regulation.

Will this patchwork of state sandboxes evolve to mirror the state bank licensing framework? And what should Pennsylvania do to stay competitive?

PittAgile: Agile And Program Management

Changing your thinking from a legacy mindset to one that is consistent with adapting fast to business changes is paramount. Everything is different now

- Focus is different - from scheduling 20 quarters out to a place where new and valuable initiatives can be expedited and others can be de-prioritized dynamically
- Budgeting is different - from up to 11 month delays before you can even consider budget adjustment to more frequent incremental funding - with fact-based confidence
- Planning is different - Traditional capacity planning and resource management practices don’t serve today’s business world well. From water-scrum-fall still having to define all requirements, causes delays and is cumbersome, too slow, to continuous funding and scope and learning.
- Managing resources is different - Team as resource unit, Tolerate incomplete data, Roughly right, Balance demand and supply
- Risk is reframed - Risk is mitigated by fact-based confidence and much shorter feedback and delivery cycles

GAN Momentum Tour

The GAN Momentum Tour is a five-stop global tour that will focus on creating opportunities for startups to succeed and gain traction, wherever they are.

Startups think differently, act differently, and run their organizations in ways that few people will ever understand. It’s because of these differences that startups are the ones changing the landscape of the future, building the next products that we will all use and love. And, startups are the engines behind our cities. They serve an important role, creating new jobs and generating revenue—sustainable work and sustainable wages for their staff and their communities.

But, startups can’t do this alone. They need corporates that want to do business with them. They need investors that provide the necessary capital to get them off the ground. They need mentors that will coach them. And they need accelerators that will bring this support around them for a short, focused period of time.

Which is why we’re so excited to invite you to the GAN Momentum Tour, a five-stop global tour celebrating the startup that’s doing things differently. The startup that decided not to go to the big city. The startup that sees the bigger picture. The startup that’s curious and wants to learn more. The startup that sees success not as individual, but as collective. And the startup that wants to do good work and build something that actually makes a difference.
