YOUR POSTURE IS SPEAKING and E-COMMERCE AT SCALE, WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE FROM THE OTHER SIDE OF THE SCREEN

ISPOSSIBLE WOMEN WHO ROCK is a community open to all, created to share possibilities and determined to increase the number of women leaders in tech. We are connecting women in tech to one another and celebrating women who rock.  We believe leaders are made not born.  Each event is created with the intent to grow our skills, connect us and inspire us.  

The women who created ISPOSSIBLE WOMEN WHO ROCK will kick off the event with a short demonstration of YOUR POSTURE IS SPEAKING, showing us how to communicate more effectively with our body language.  How posing in certain power postures changes not only how others perceive you, but how you perceive yourself.   

Following that, hang around for an introduction to scaling eCommerce, delivered by the tech team at Bookspan.

With today's technology you can launch a superstore in your dorm room, but what happens when you succeed? What kind of infrastructure is required to sell, pack and ship a hundred thousand products every day out of a half-million square foot warehouse, as well as build a mobile app or two on the side? That's the scale we support at Bookspan, and we'd love to share how we do it with a ten-person (but growing!) engineering team.

Key topics will include leveraging the cloud (dynamic scaling & edge caching), continuous-flow operations (queues & dispatchers), rich client development and automated testing. This talk is appropriate for developers (not much code, but highly technical topics) and operations/management.


Presenters will include Delaney Manders (CTO) and three of her engineers (Catia, Minerva & Tanya).
