    Great meeting as usual!

    Please check out your food sponsors Health 2.0 Houston (http://health20houston.com/) and consider attending the code-a-thon on March 23 - March 24 (http://h20hhack.eventbrite.com/).

    The aim of the code-a-thon is to bring together local medical professionals and developers to solve problems within the healthcare system. In addition to participating in a great collaborative opportunity, attenders will be able to work with a branded dataset detailing doctor referrals (http://notonlydev.com/docgraph/) and an exclusive natural language processing API (http://www.ask-ziggy.com/walkthrough.html).

    There will be thousands in cash and other prizes. Register here: http://h20hhack.eventbrite.com/.

    Yeah, great meeting again! Here's the documentation link I promised to send - it was pretty smooth to get my ruby web app (www.potluckpoll.com) deployed to AWS using Elastic Beanstalk: http://docs.aws.amazon.com/elasticbeanstalk/latest/dg/create_deploy_Ruby_rails.html

    +1 maybe give a description of the problem domain being addressed before the talk? I would like to get my head around it first.

      I'm going to go over a specific project I worked on, roughly documented at http://brighterplanet...­ I'm going to dumb it down a little, but basically we modeled carbon emissions from various activities using a decision tree. That is, depending on what information you had about a flight, we'd calculate using either user input values, default values, or based on other related values. For instance, if you specify the type of plane, that affects the the fuel efficiency factor that determines how much fuel was burned. If you don't know the type of plane, we use a default industry average.
