• Software Engineering - Dynamic Programming

    Dupars Restaurant

    The SGV Software Engineering group, is a group of devs, admins, hardware hackers, seeking seeking to write more maintainable and robust code. And hopefully we can avoid the dreaded, "who wrote this!", only to have Git blame to say it was us. At this month's meeting of the SGV SWENG group, Jaime will going over "Everything I Suck At (Dynamic programming)". We generally give ~15 minutes give every a chance to get in a drink or food order before we start the presentation (No purchase is required). As part of building one another to become better engineers, we encourage members to bring code they are working and to participate in peer reviews after the presentation. Abstract: Taking the first step at being sorta good. Approaching algorithms can be a difficult endeavor for many including myself. In what I hope will be an enlightening experience for me and you, I will be exploring a topic of difficulty for myself. I will quickly introduce some types of algorithms. I will then define and explore one generic approach called Dynamic Programming. It is a common and often very powerful tool when designing an algorithm. A difficulty with DP is that it may require a bit of creativity and insight but it can lead to an efficient algorithm. It is an framework that is good for problems that can be broken down to sub-problems, often used for optimization. We will go through a couple problems and hopefully we will walk away with another framework in our toolbelt. SGVTech Slack Channel: #sweng

  • SGVHAK Meeting

    Needs a location

    Join us to show off your new toys or work on your projects. Come to join like minded hardware hackers and learn from each other. This meeting tends to be very social.

  • LiveCode Developers

    Du-Par's Restaurant and Bakery

    The SoCal LiveCode Developers Group meets on the first Thursday of each month at Du-Par's in Pasadena. What is LiveCode? LiveCode is a rapid application development toolkit for most major platforms: Linux, Windows, OS X, iOS, Android, and Raspberry Pi. It has a high-level event-driven scripting language in which GUI objects are built-in along with everything else you'd expect in a general-purpose language, shortening the distance between designing and shipping an application. LiveCode Community Edition is licensed under GPLv3 and freely available at LiveCode.org (https://livecode.org) What do you do at your meetings? Most of our meetings have at least one presentation between 30 and 60 minutes, with the rest of the time for open Q&A and problem-solving. While many of our members are experienced scripters, we mix it up with introductory talks when we know we'll have newcomers (one more reason to RSVP). I know nothing about LiveCode - can I come anyway? Of course! The more the merrier, space permitting. The room we use at Du-Par's can seat about 20 people quite comfortably, and we're happy to share what we're learning about LiveCode with anyone who's interested.

After the Ubuntu Hour we'll go to the San Gabriel Valley Linux User Group meeting at 7PM. It tends to be held at either Du-Par's on S. Lake and Cordova, or at OpenX on Lake and Walnut.

  • SGV Linux Users Group Monthly Meeting

    Needs a location

    We normally meet for dinner and a presentation, with dinner beginning at 7pm and presentations starting around 7:45 to 8pm.

In addition to Linux, the group also shares interests in other free and open source software, all forms of technology, and the discussion of issues that arise with the these new tools, such as privacy rights. SGVLUG attracts members from throughout LA County including Pasadena, Glendale, Burbank, and eastward throughout the San Gabriel Valley. Our members include software developers, system administrators, hardware engineers, and software users of all levels of experience. Many work in the technology field as employees, contractors or consultants, and enjoy the learning and networking opportunities available from the group. We also have many members that serve as volunteers of their time and skills at various local events, including the annual Southern California Linux Expo (SCaLE).
