Sepetember is already full steam ahead and in just 5 short days will be our September meetup. We'll have two talks lined up this month at The Hub location and, as always, food and drink will be available.

Serverless: Beyond the Hype
In case you hadn't heard, Serverless is all the rage these days. Before you write it off as just another hype cycle it'll be good to delve into the details and why people are so excited about it. In this talk we'll cover what I think are two different kinds of "Serverless": Backend as a Service (products like Firebase) and Functions as a Service. This will cover a range of simple tooling to jumpstart a product to quick and easy way to build out operations for internal jobs. I'll also cover some real world usage of Serverless at Zapier.

Gamifying Surgery and Beyond
Imagine Surgeons learning vital surgical procedures right from their tablets, how about insurers finally having enough evidence of such surgeries performed. Nevertheless, Surgeons will be objectively evaluated for their performance, and Patients will be more protected from any future error rate due to insufficient practice, while all are having satisfactory value proposition monetary or service wise. This is the age of convergence by the power of Gamification.
