Inspired by Stephanie Hurlburt's cupcakes and math meetup in Seattle, we've started a cupcakes and math club here in PDX.
As a special treat this month, we'll be focusing on submitting PRs for Hacktoberfest, in addition to our usual math discussion! Come celebrate open source and and make your first PRs toward Digital Ocean's hacktoberfest event. Learn more about Hacktoberfest here: https://hacktoberfest.digitalocean.com/
Come join us:
Location: Posie's Cafe
Time: 11:30am - 2:00pm
Commitment: Have fun. There's no need to show up regularly, on time or stay the whole time. It's a chill, "drop in whenever you feel like you need some math in your life" event.
What To Bring: Bring a math textbook you want to do problems from (or a laptop with online learning materials). If you don't feel comfortable working with math, that's fine. Bring a program that's giving you trouble, or a computation-related side project.
What Will Happen: You'll sharpen your math skills while eating cute pastries next to other ladies doing the same thing. We can work quietly, ask for help from others or talk about a cool thing you just learned.
