Nightclubs are big business in Las Vegas and one company has used technology to create a great customer experience while clubbing on the Strip. Chief Technology Officer, Pablo Jablonski of PartyPetition, developed the PartyPetition app. A nightlife guide, that allows a user to send a bid to up to five nightclubs and make a choice depending on which offers are accepted. There is also a split payment function allowing payment to be charged between multiple credit cards for those dividing the cost.
With a degree in computer science focusing on human computer interaction from Stanford University, Jablonski’s duties include overseeing the development of software on various projects as well as interacting with other departments within the business. While he is the sole iPhone developer for the app, he also works with other web developers.
“The computer science degree is very good at Standford in teaching how to design and code as well as get an overall view of the larger project,” he said. “I learned how to deal with problems (both large and small), taking logical steps to solve those problems, and how to approach projects including getting input from others to create the best solution.”
Jablonski believes the field of technology offers people the opportunity to provide very unique ways and new ideas to solve problems by creating new products and services and implementing them quickly. According to him, technology can offer a variety of solutions.
He also stated that, “education is very important, regardless of the field you choose. It is important to learn so you can perform in that field to the best of your ability.”
Jablonski also believes there are other benefits. “For example, in obtaining a degree in computer science, you will probably learn to code better. However, an education can also give you a different cultural perspective in what you do and how it matters in a larger role for a bigger community than the one you grew up and lived in before getting a higher education. It gives you a perspective that allows you to be successful in the work world.”
