Triangle Modern Web
Hi all! Triangle.rb is partnering with Triangle Modern Web to throw another big quarterly meetup! Come hang out with us @ Pendo in Raiegh. ⚠️Make sure you RSVP on the Modern Web Meetup page Featured Talks: Speaker: Jeff Mahoney, Software Developer, IBM Watson Health “Get Your AI On: Machine Learning with JavaScript using BrainJS” Description: Classes and toolkits for machine learning are everywhere... if you like coding in Python or R. But what about the intrepid developers out there who want to play with machine learning using JavaScript? Is there a solution for them? The answer is yes. In this presentation, we will walk through training a neural network using BrainJS, a wonderful library that allows us to do this in a language most (all?) front-end and web developers are familiar with. Come and watch the birth of SkyNet with JS! Speaker: Marcus Hellburg, lead developer advocate at Vaadin, helping developers learn about modern web technologies, background in embedded systems but has worked on everything web related for the past 15+ years. “Hands-on with PWA and Web Components” Description: The web is turning into an application platform. Web Components give us a way of defining reusable UI components. Progressive Web Applications improve performance in poor network conditions. You can install them on your phone and they can send you notifications of important events. In this presentation, we'll learn the basics of Web Components and Progressive Web Applications by building a small application from scratch. After the presentation, you will have the skills needed to get started working on your own PWA. Speaker: Peter Elbaum, Software Engineer at Smashing Boxes “Cambridge Ana-cynical: Understanding the Facebook information scandal and its APIs” Description: In the spring of this year, it became public knowledge that as many as 87 million Facebook users had their data mined by an app developed by the political data firm Cambridge Analytica. These events prompted many questions including inquiries about whether or not the data access was legal. From a software development perspective, one wonders how exactly the data mining was achieved. With that in mind, this talk will dive into the breach and the capabilities of Facebook's public APIs. We will survey what people developing on Facebook's platform are able to accomplish and the data that's immediately available to them. We'll also demo of some of the common utilties that are possible using the Facebook Javascript SDK. More event details coming soon! ⚠️Make sure you RSVP here to get an accurate headcount:
