All About ChatGPT - How it works, How to prompt it, calling APIs, and other LLMs


If you've caught any tech news in the last 4 months or so, then you're well aware of Chat GPT. To say it's taken over the imaginations of the world wouldn't be a stretch, whether you're a technologist or not.

But what can you really do with it? How will it affect your day to day life and your job? Or the jobs of your children? We could go deep in philosophical questions, but this talk will be focused on the practical:

  • What is this thing, actually? - A high level breakdown of the technology and what it's doing.
  • Principles of Prompt Engineering (i.e., how do you ask GPT to do specific things or behave in specific ways?)
  • Integration approaches using APIs or other third parties
  • Training GPT with your own custom data
  • Other LLMs and how to use them, even on your own servers


  • Join us at 5:30 for snacks, drinks, conversation and socializing.
  • 6:00 - Main talk
  • 7:00 - 7:30 - Wrap up, tidy up, chat a bit more
  • 7:30 - ? - After Party*


PLEASE NOTE: You'll need an elevator and door code to get in. That will be sent out on the day of the event as this changes from time to time.

"Call for Papers"! .. if you have some knowledge to share with the community, please talk to Dave at the next meetup. We'd love to have 1 or 2 talks per meetup lined up for the coming months.

*After Party? .. with our new location, we're right next to Revelry Brewing. If folks are interested, we can clean up at the CDC and keep the conversation going over a nice local brew.
