Announcing Our New Board of Directors

Every year, we have an annual meeting to hang out, throw a party, and elect a new board of directors based on our company bylaws. We are happy to announce a lot of new faces ready to bring some ideas to the space.

Our new president, Scott Lawrence brings his background in electronics, software development, antique computer hardware, electronic reverse engineering, and Legos to the position. Carl Schmidtmann will complete a second term as Vice President providing his knowledge of numerous subjects including super computers, Linux, electronics and all kinds of subjects. A relatively new member, Joe Hale is welcomed in as our Secretary.  Bill Horst-Kotter will be representing the “Member at Large” position.

We are especially excited about our new treasurer, Ryan Tucker, as he has been investing time into  improving our financial situation, helping to make it easier to take in donations as a newly 501c3, and making sure that money is being spent wisely. As a member, Ryan will continue to leak out his knowledge related to RF, software-defined radios, software development, electronics, networking, and all kinds of interesting subjects we have yet to discover.

We look forward to the next generation of Interlock Rochester’s board of directors.

Interlock Rochester Welcomes “Girl Develop It”

We’re pleased to announce that we will be welcoming Girl Develop It (GDI) on Nov 12th and 13th from 6:30-8:30pm for a two day HTML and CSS training class. After meeting with organizers Kristen Curtze and Liz Gombert, we thought this was something Interlock Rochester should and could support.

About Girl Develop It

Girl Develop It is a nonprofit organization that was launched in New York in 2010. The initial goal was to draw more women to the development community and to provide judgment-free learning opportunities through teaching one another. Girl Develop It has since grown within the vision of creating a network of empowered women who feel confident in their abilities to code and build beautiful web and mobile applications. The organization is currently making an impact in 33 cities around the US and Canada with 10 new chapters, including Rochester.
