Round 8: Appreciation Engine

Hack and Tell will be at WeWork Chinatown in April! (Here's hoping everyone from iStrategy comes over anyway - we love you!) It's a brave new world of cool hacks - several already in, and this could be your chance to join them! Presentation signups are here:

http://bit.ly/hackandtelldc8

The format is informal, engaging, and friendly: presenters have 5 minutes to show off their hack (it goes faster than you’d expect) and then the audience has 5 minutes to ask questions, make jokes, and suggest ideas and feedback. The hacks that people present are anything from how to train your dog to text you when it needs a walk to [something more serious... like beer visualizations]. Show us what you’ve got! But remember: no startup pitches, dull work projects, or deckware!

If you’re interested in presenting, complete this short form to let us know: http://bit.ly/hackandtelldc8

See you at the meetup! We'll start close to seven. There may be a couple beers. It's going to be fun! :) Big thanks to WeWork for hosting us this time around!

    It was great meeting people last night!

    We found a jacket when we were cleaning up, the receptionist at WeWork should have it.

    It is a well known fact that in response to advances in Deep Learning, cats the world over have taken to disguise to evade detection. I've attached some key benchmark images on the success of this recent development... A recent anonymous video on the subject is here:

    For more on the success of deep learning at detecting cats, slides and audio here:

    I'm sorry I had to decline this event, but I've sent Aaron some benchmark images to interrogate the performance of different cat disguises and understand some of the top recognition confusers.

    Hi everyone,

    I'll be demoing a project I helped build for work. Its purpose is to show off a scalable, fault tolerance architecture built on FoundationDB, but I won't pitch you guys on the database. I'll talk about how we built the demo, which technologies were used, how it all fits together, etc.

    To give you a little more info, the demo is composed of seven tiny computers with usb monitors. There are five different applications to show off and one database. The computers have to boot fast and tolerate random power outages and unplugged network cables, and nearly everything is setup with Ansible scripts.

    See you there!
    Jen

    p.s. You can see our old demo here if you're interested: https://foundationdb.com/blog/foundationdb-fault-tolerance-demo-video

    Sometimes people just want to cite other people's work. Is that so wrong?!

      Is there any chance if I google any 3 consecutive words from your "paper" I get 0 hits?
