Cape Town: Machine Learning (Neural Networks) & Programming for Game Development
Agenda · Welcome (5min) · Session 1 - 30 min · Session 2 - 40 min ======================================================================= Session 1 Title: Programming for game development Facilitator: Danny Day About the talk: I meet a lot of programmers that started out because they wanted to make games. Very few of them end up making games. I did. I'd like to talk about the assumptions that get in the way and what the local industry looks like for hobbyists and professionals alike. About the facilitator: Danny has been professionally developing games for 14 years, run a local studio for 11, and accidentally started and ran a local game development community that evolved into our national industry body. Chances are reasonably high that he's met your game development heros. ======================================================================= Session 2 Title: An introduction to Machine Learning, Artificial Neural Networks and the mathematics behind them. Facilitator: Tristan van Dam About the talk: A brief introduction to Machine Learning. I will be going over the basic mathematics involved in an already trained feed forward network. About the facilitator: Tristan studied Mechatronics Engineering at UCT and is currently working as a Software Engineer. He's an avid surfer and is always doing something active in his free time.

What we're about

We love all things developer.

We are a technology & vendor-neutral group (so we do not favour anyone or anything) which lets us share and learn on WIDE variety of topics from software development methodologies to patterns, best practices, various language paradigms and xkcd humour etc.

It's great to meet local developers and see what they are doing! From beginner to expert, all are welcome.

We meet monthly to learn about things related to software development. Our regular meetings happen in Joburg, Pretoria and Cape Town every month!

We also run ad hoc special events.
