What are we all about? Our community has over 400 members from the tech industry, mainly specialising in Java and front end technologies, this includes almost 100 mentors who range from engineers to CTOs.
By matching mentors and mentees within the community, Meet a Mentor allows you to open a dialogue to discuss new technologies, career goals and troubles. Meet a Mentor also offers an approachable, friendly mentor matching service within the community.
We run an active online Slack group, meetups and 1-2-1 mentorship opportunities.
Mob programming is a software development approach where the whole team works on the same thing, at the same time, in the same space, and at the same computer. We do this with Machine Learning problems every week we improve our understanding of the problem and the accuracy of our model session after session.
Before coming, please check our github project and get familiar with what we have done so far.
Make sure you rsvp at the latest, before midday on the day of the session, otherwise security may not let you in.
######## Long Version ########
There are many great courses on machine learning, but we've found that there is a gap between completing a course and having the practical experience to deploy it on your own projects. This is the problem that our study group exists to solve. Here we learn together through practice and tackle a Machine Learning problem. We are relaunching the group and would like to invite anyone with an interest in machine learning to join
- Who is it for?
People who already have some knowledge in Machine Learning, did a course or at least practised for a month (we recommend the Machine learning course from Andrew NG) and want to practice on a project. We don’t recommend complete beginners with no experience to join just yet.
- What is it?
We work together to solve a ML problem, and improve our understanding of the problem and the accuracy of our model session after session, using mob programming.
Sessions will happen in London from 6 to 8pm on Wednesdays.
Every couples of months we choose a new problem.
You can join the group at any time.
we commit our work on a github repository, document everything we do on Slack and in the github README, and invite you to get up to date before coming.
We spend the first 15 min of every session reintroducing the project and our progress.
If you'd like to participate in the study group and you are not a member of the slack team https://meet-a-mentor.slack.com please complete this form http://meetamentor.co.uk/join/ and ask to join the machine learning study group.
This is a meetup for members of the Meet a Mentor Machine Learning Study Group led by Jeremie Charlet and Dave Snowdon.
Please remember to bring photo i.d and check in as a guest of Jeremie Charlet on arrival at WeWork.
