What we're about

Please review this entire website and prepare your computer and web accounts before attending: http://CppMSG.com

This meetup shares three (3) completely separate topics during separate meetings. Basically sharing one paid meetup group and getting three different sub-groups. You can monitor/attend all three topic events :)

1) Software Engineering Design Patterns. Covers the famous and classic Gang of Four/Gamma book called 'Design Patterns'.

2) JavaScript, NodeJS, Typescript. Covers beginner to advanced aspects of the JS ecosystem. It will NOT cover AI or ML for JavaScript. That will be covered by the AI/ML group below.

3) AI Machine Learning with C++, Python and JavaScript. Our AI sub-group will share the calendar with the other sub-groups.

4) NLP Natural Language Processing / Understanding. This might be considered a sub-group of the AI sub-group.

We are already experienced programmers (by education or experience) who are learning and, or, deepening our knowledge as we both learn from, and mentor our colleagues within our CppMSG group.

Do you like sharing your knowledge or refining it by helping others, learn best by teaching?

!! Mentors Needed !! We'll do what we can to make your contribution to our group fulfilling for you. Our mentors are the lifeblood of the CppMSG approach to learning.

We'll be using our using our CppMSG methodology: study at home; and only ask questions and debate answers during the meetings; there is no lecturing.

These meetings are productive and interesting to those that are serious about rigorously studying.

Please eat before attending since no food will be served.

Please change your RSVP to NO if you can't attend, and do so before the meeting, even if only by a few minutes. ;)

If you can host this meeting at a quiet location that has good wifi, tables for laptop use, and maybe even free parking, please let Grant Rostig (organizer) know.

Specifically for our AI / Machine Learning / NPL sub-group:

• In addition to already being experienced programmers, all members are very comfortable with mathematics such as high school or college level geometry, trigonometry, algebra, and calculus.

• All members know, or are willing to learn some linear algebra and some small amount of probability and statistics. We are also willing to upgrade your math skills (as may be needed) using college level textbooks.

Mathematics of AI & ML - Let's Study It Together! - CppMSG

Baer Engineering and Environmental Consulting, Inc

Have you made a new year's resolution to upgrade your artificial intelligence and machine learning skills? To really understand the effective use of the algorithms and published papers we need to understand mathematics. Let's study calculus, linear algebra, probability and statistics together. Grant has found some great books and videos we can use for a framework of study. We are currently using this book: http://amlbook.com/ You will need to buy, read and bring the book along to participate in our study and discussion. Visitors are welcome to silently observe even if they don't have the book with them. >> http://CppMSG.com << Please READ aforementioned website to find out the uniquely structured way the meeting is run and other important details about this focused group. The doors open 30 minutes before the time mentioned for computer setup and professional networking. Entering the building: Enter via very plain looking back steel door with 5 button keypad lock, the center of three doors in a small simple entry way, at the very back of the long building, furthest from Northcross St. Call or Text >[masked] fouur 21 eigght< to get us to open it.

You will need it. Wifi is available. Currently we do not offer online attendance options. For simple text "chat" and "code pasting" during the meeting, do not use google hangouts, instead login and use: https://gitter.im/machinelearning_ai/Lobby Young People: All programmers and mathematicians are welcome, however if you are under 18 years of age, you will need to be accompanied at ALL times by your parent or legal guardian. There are no exceptions to this rule. Mentors Needed! - Our expert volunteer mentors benefit from teaching, as well as hearing and learning alternative approaches from their fellow mentor's views, and the questions asked by the learners (students) during a session. NOTE: No food will be served, please eat before you arrive. Sorry, no food or drinks other than pure water, may be consumed on the premises. All sessions are, or may be, recorded in video and audio. Recordings are not available at this time. These recordings may, or may not, be posted on the internet in the future. Generally, a simple web cam is pointed at the white board and only the presenters are visible. However attendee questions and comments can be heard. Your attendance constitutes your acceptance of being recorded.
