What we're about

Iowa JavaScript

We have different "chapters" across the state. If you're interested in starting one in your area and sharing this Meetup account and the @iowajs (https://twitter.com/iowajs) account, let us know.

Iowa City

Our typical meetups are the 3rd Thursday of each month at MERGE (http://mergeic.com/) at 136 S Dubuque St in downtown Iowa City.

The format is usually lightning talks, where we go around and talk about something JavaScript related (but doesn't really need to be JavaScript related, as long as it's interesting.) The can go from 5 to 15 minutes.

Snacks are graciously provided by Telepharm, and you can bring your own beverages.

Anybody who's interested in JavaScript or just hanging out with cool people can come. All skill levels are welcome, and we all have diverse programming backgrounds so we hope you'll be comfortable and have fun!

Iowa City January: Computer Vision in the Browser

Online event

Computer vision is powering everything from self driving cars to next generation augmented reality… but you don’t need a PhD to use it anymore. Come learn how you can build a custom computer vision model into your next JavaScript app. In this talk, we’ll walk through the fundamentals of machine learning: data collection, annotation, preprocessing, training, and deployment. We’ll also do a live demo, together, of training and deploying our very own model for identifying hand gestures. 🙌 About the Speakers Joseph and Brad are the co-founders of Roboflow, which builds developer tools for software developers to use computer vision without machine learning expertise. Over 20,000 developers have used Roboflow for everything from oil leak detection to fish counting to accelerating cancer research. Roboflow recently announced they’ve raised 2.1M from investors like Craft Ventures (David Sacks), Lachy Groom (Stripe), Calvin French-Owen (Segment), and others.
