BarCamp-2019

OPIE Hosts Gainesville BarCamp Tech Conference

OPIE Software Sponsors Gainvesville BarCamp

OPIE was a proud sponsor of the 5th Annual BarCamp GNV, which celebrated five years of knowledge sharing, community building, and networking. BarCamp GNV is an unconference – an ad-hoc gathering born from the desire for people to share and learn in an open environment. Sessions are given on a variety of topics, and the day is created collaboratively – built by the attendees who have a topic, story, knowledge, or experience to share with the rest of the community. OPIE staff both attended and hosted sessions for the tech community. Presenting from OPIE included Priya Rudradas, Justin Doan, and Jay Rosen.

Priya Rudradas (Chief Operating Officer) spoke with Usha Suryadevara (Director of Development, Info Tech), Jenn Edge (Assistant Director of Development, Info Tech), Sue Rocher (Software Developer III, Infinite Energy), and Elise Carmichael (Enterprise Solutions Strategist, Tricentis) about the launch of “We Advance Technology Together”. The goal of We Advance Tech Together, is to bring women technologists together so they can share their experiences with others, connect, and stay inspired! Accelerate the rate of women entering the tech space ensuring that they are equipped with the skills, education and sense of community they need to empower their journey.

Justin Doan (Software Developer) shared his personal story of how he transitioned careers from Accounting to Software Development. Justin aims to help others in the community empower themselves to do the same in his talk outlining the critical decisions to make and steps to take from ‘technically illiterate’ to paid developer, while drawing parallels to lessons learned on his own journey.

Jay Rosen (Marketing) illustrated how his artistic career evolved through collaborations with designers, musicians, film-makers, and everyday strangers with the “Mirror Visionwear” project. The wearable mirrored sculptures and mirrored geodesic dome toured all over North America 4 times with the synth-pop band TIME. Although Jay was not physically traveling with the band, he demonstrated how social media can be utilized as a tool to find and collect imagery from anywhere – generating new stories and roadmaps from the geo-tagged hashtag #MirrorVisionwear.

OPIE Cares Partners With Life South To Save 72 Live

OPIE Software is constantly striving to better serve the O&P field and the greater community. The OPIE cares program is a new initiative with the goal of giving back to the community through donation events and volunteering activities.

OPIE Cares has proudly partnered with Life South Community Blood to host its first Blood Drive on March 29, 2019. In order for the Blood Drive to have been considered a success, OPIE needed 17 donors – but managed to gain 24 whole blood donations! Since each donation of blood can save up to three lives – OPIE helped save 72 lives during the Friday event! Thank you to everyone who helped support the OPIE Cares event! Find out more about how you can help your community

OPIE Cares will be hosting another Blood Drive on Friday June 14st from 8 AM – 5 PM in front of the office headquarters – 3870 NW 83rd Street, Gainesville, FL. All donors will receive a recognition item, free snacks, and a free cholesterol screening.
