Join us for "Monthly JavaScript" at Zayo in Boulder! Food will be present.

This month, Tyler will be giving a lightning talk on "Intro to Evolutionary Algorithms." Learn about the development of evolutionary algorithms and how to apply them to a variety of problems. Jessica will then walk us through a JavaScript example & code-along with an example implementation.

Tyler is a graduate of the University of Wyoming, where he conducted NASA-funded research as an undergrad with the Evolving AI Lab. He now uses evolutionary algorithms in simulation and games as a means of procedural content generation.

***It can be a little tricky to find our entrance - We are on 29th St., between Eddie Bauer and Starbucks. The entrance is past the children's play area. If you cannot find us, message Jen Winer on meetup.***

Everyone is welcome, no matter what level. The first half of the meetup is lightning talk is focused on icebreakers and a lightning talk + coding demo. Then, the second half is individual projects and questions. Don't have a project you're working on? No problem, we'd love for you to come anyway. Start a group project with other meetup attendees. Brush up on your JS skills. Use our resource guide, google, and each other to create something awesome. Or just come to hang out and meet people!
