Welcome to GreeceJS season[masked]. We are now on year 7 :-)
A special announcement is due: GreeceJS is officially a legal association! This opens up new opportunities for sponsoring and simplifies day-to-day operations. Most importantly, it makes GreeceJS a truly open community. Our members vote for the board. The board changes every two years. Find out more at https://github.com/greecejs/articles-of-association
Meetup #26 features two awesome talks: The eminent Zaharenia Atzitzikaki will iterate on mistakes she made as a manager and lessons learned midway. Aggelos Karalias, one of the best engineers of our community, will introduce us to the magical world of probabilistic data structures.

Introduction to Probabilistic Data Structures (gr)
- Aggelos Karalias, Lead Software Engineer at Logicea
Is it possible to tell whether an element exists in a large set of items without looking at the items? Sometimes it's better to tame big data by simply ignoring them. Aggelos will introduce us to the magical world of probabilistic data structures, such as HyperLogLog and Bloom Filter.
