Welcome coders. This group brings together software professionals in south east New Jersey. There aren't many active tech groups in this area and we hope to give folks an alternative to Philadelphia based meetups.
Our December tech meetup on Thursday December 12th at 6:30pm will be in Hammonton NJ, exact location TBD. We will have pizza and refreshments to start off the evening.
Robert Buccigrossi will be giving a presentation/demo on Machine Learning in Python using scikit-learn. Machine Learning is a fast growing topic in computer science and has a lot of great applications (and jobs) in the real world. scikit-learn is an easy way to get started with ML so if you have any interest in the topic I think this will be a great discussion for you.
Our February tech meetup on Thursday Feb 13th at 6:30pm will be in Hammonton NJ, exact location TBD. We will have pizza and refreshments to start off the evening.
Our topic this month will be:
Spark: Distributed computing in Python
In this talk, we'll cover the basics of multithreading/multiprocessing in Python and the gap that it leaves. We'll then discuss how Spark can fill that gap and the basics of how that works. We will then move into writing some simple Spark applications and how we can run them locally and on hosted services such as Amazon's EMR.
