Current Events Meetups Tampa Bay

Tech professionals – UX/Devs networking meetup this Wednesday!

Hey, Tampa area techies! There’s a “Tech Professionals UX/Devs Networking” meetup happening this Wednesday, and Anitra and I will be attending!

Here’s the event description from their Meetup page:

Hi all!

We are a group of tech professionals in the Tampa Bay Area. Designers, Developers and anything in-between. Whether an industry veteran or just getting started in your career, come join us for casual networking over food and drinks!

We will meet outside of Lala’s Sangria Bar on Wednesday, April 6 at 6PM.

See you there!

La La’s Sangria Bar is in Channelside — 203 N Meridian Avenue. It’ll be an outdoor gathering, which should greatly reduce any COVID risk.

Be sure to register for the event on their Meetup page!

We’ll see you there!

Humor Programming

Program in C: The coding song in Disney’s “The Little Mermaid”

How did I not know that this existed? Here’s a parody of Under the Sea, the bouncy song from Disney’s animated film The Little Mermaid, but instead of being about why life is better under the sea, it’s about why programming is better with C than with any of those newfangled programming languages with their classes and whatnot:

This amuses me to no end.

When I was a DJ at Clark Hall Pub, the engineering pub at Crazy Go Nuts University, among the alt-rock songs that were guaranteed to pack the dance floor was a strange outlier that started as a joke but turned into a hit that had to be played at least once a night: Under the Sea!

It’s also the time when I got proficient in C, as it was one of the acceptable programming languages for using in assignments. The other one was Turing, and yes, there’s a reason you haven’t heard of it. (One of my favorite professors, Dr. Michael Levison, used to say that Alan Turing would probably be horrified at the programming language that bears his name.)

I may have to add this one to my accordion repertoire.

Current Events Tampa Bay

What’s happening in the Tampa Bay tech/entrepreneur/nerd scene (Week of Monday, April 4, 2022)

Here’s the list of tech, entrepreneur, and nerd events for Tampa Bay and surrounding areas for the week of Monday, April 4 through Sunday, April 10, 2022.

As far as event types go, this list casts a rather wide net. It includes events that would be of interest to techies, nerds, and entrepreneurs. It includes (but isn’t limited to) events that fall under the category of:

  • Programming, DevOps, systems administration, and testing
  • Tech project management / agile processes
  • Video, board, and role-playing games
  • Book, philosophy, and discussion clubs
  • Tech, business, and entrepreneur networking events
  • Toastmasters (because nerds really need to up their presentation game)
  • Sci-fi, fantasy, and other genre fandoms
  • Anything I deem geeky

By “Tampa Bay and surrounding areas”, this list covers events that originate or are aimed at the area within 100 miles of the Port of Tampa. At the very least, that includes the cities of Tampa, St. Petersburg, and Clearwater, but as far north as Ocala, as far south as Fort Myers, and includes Orlando and its surrounding cities.

This week’s events

I try to keep this list up-to-date. I add new events as soon as I hear about them, so be sure to check the latest version of this week’s list on Global Nerdy!
