At this meeting we will have:
- an intro/review of probability distributions and where to use them
- a discussion on a real life case study
- a discussion on chapters 1-3 of the book.
Come on out and learn, teach and discuss probabilistic programming.
We'll start the first few meetings by going through the free book Bayesian Methods for Hackers by Cameron Davidson-Pilon. Go ahead and read the first few chapters if get a chance before the meeting.

Also, I've created a #probabilistic-program channel on the pdxstartups slack group which you can join at https://pdx-startups-slack.herokuapp.com
