Skills Share Group
The Technical Skills Share Group meets in the
Chelmsford Library's McCarthy Meeting Room on
the 4th Wednesday of each month from 12:30 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. (except for Nov and Dec). The
group meets at the Acton
Memorial Library on all other Wednesdays of the month. The
group is led by volunteers who research and lead technical projects. The
goals of the group are to help high tech professionals in job transition
share their skills and impart knowledge to others. This helps participants
and members to be better prepared for technical interviews.
The Technical Skills Share group has been meeting since the Spring of 2009. The technology training covered by the group includes: C/C++, VBA, Java, C#, Perl, Computer networking - TCP/IP, MS Access, OOD, UML, DSP, Real Time Operating Systems, Cloud computing, Six Sigma, Source control, subversion etc. Technical presentations are led by participants, as well as by external speakers, who are experts in their area.
Independently, the group is also working on a product development effort that helps members learn, upgrade and sharpen their "product development" skills. All the work is led by the volunteers who research and lead the project on a weekly basis.
Every week, the first session includes an open discussion about the product development effort and reports on the progress each week. The second session is the technical presentation by a speaker.
As an added benefit the sessions provide networking between high technology professionals.
The group has had remote sessions which allow participants to attend events online remotely from their homes using DIMDIM technology. The group is still working on improving this service, and it is not widely publicized yet.
