Thank You Serge Doumit

CINNUG would like to thank Serge Doumit for presenting on "Machine Learning Techniques" in November.


Tuesday January 23rd, Max Technical Training in Mason, OH

6pm at our monthly CINNUG meeting, we welcome our own Phil Japikse with "Leaders Are Made, Not Born"

Leaders aren't born, they aren't hatched, and they don't apparate.  Leadership is a journey, one that involves hard work, practice, and a deep understanding of not only your team members but also yourself. I've led teams large and small throughout my 30 year career, and certainly made plenty of mistakes on the way,  But I've learned to fail fast, iterate, and continuously improve to create high performing teams across multiple verticals. In this session I share what I have learned over the years being a leader and being led.


An international speaker, Microsoft MVP, ASPInsider, MCSD, CSM, and CSP, and a passionate member of the developer community, Phil Japikse has been working with .NET since the first betas, developing software for over 30 years, and heavily involved in the agile community since 2005.
